To fear love is to fear life, and those who fear life are already three parts dead.

Bertrand Russell

We have, in fact, two kinds of morality side by side; one which we preach but do not practise, and another which we practise but seldom preach.

Bertrand Russell

Passive acceptance of the teacher's wisdom is easy to most boys and girls. It involves no effort of independent thought, and seems rational because the teacher knows more than his pupils; it is moreover the way to win the favour of the teacher unless he is a very exceptional man. Yet the habit of passive acceptance is a disastrous one in later life. It causes man to seek and to accept a leader, and to accept as a leader whoever is established in that position.

Bertrand Russell

Three passions, simple but overwhelmingly strong, have governed my life: the longing for love, the search for knowledge, and unbearable pity for the suffering of mankind.

Bertrand Russell

I'm not a woman. I'm a force of nature.

Courtney Love

I'm driven. I am. I'm driven for some reason. But I don't know where I'm going.

Courtney Love

When the intensity of emotional conviction subsides, a man who is in the habit of reasoning will search for logical grounds in favour of the belief which he finds in himself.

Bertrand Russell

Life is nothing but a competition to be the criminal rather than the victim.

Bertrand Russell

Not to be absolutely certain is, I think, one of the essential things in rationality.

Bertrand Russell

Those who forget good and evil and seek only to know the facts are more likely to achieve good than those who view the world through the distorting medium of their own desires.

Bertrand Russell

The fact that an opinion has been widely held is no evidence whatever that it is not utterly absurd.

Bertrand Russell

There is much pleasure to be gained from useless knowledge.

Bertrand Russell

But all who are not lunitics are agreed about certain things: That it is better to be alive than dead, better to be adequately fed than starved, better to be free than to be a slave. Many people desire these things only for themselves and their friends; they are quite content that their enemies should suffer. These people can be refuted by science: Mankind has become so much one family that we cannot insure our own prosperity except by insuring that of everyone else. If you wish to be happy yourself, you must resign yourself to seeing others also happy.

Bertrand Russell

To be without some of the things you want is an indispensable part of happiness.

Bertrand Russell

The good life, as I conceive it, is a happy life. I do not mean that if you are good you will be happy; I mean that if you are happy you will be good.

Bertrand Russell

One of the symptoms of an approaching nervous breakdown is the belief that one's work is terribly important.

Bertrand Russell

Men fear thought as they fear nothing else on earth -- more than ruin -- more even than death.... Thought is subversive and revolutionary, destructive and terrible, thought is merciless to privilege, established institutions, and comfortable habit. Thought looks into the pit of hell and is not afraid. Thought is great and swift and free, the light of the world, and the chief glory of man.

Bertrand Russell

The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt.

Bertrand Russell

Life has taught us that love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking together in the same direction.

Antoine de Saint-Exupery

There is always some madness in love. But there is also always some reason in madness.

Friedrich Nietzsche
