The Liberal Ten Commandments.

Via on May 2, 2013

“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

A Code to Live by:

Bertrand Russell’s Ten Commandments for Living in a Healthy Democracy:

“The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt.” – Bertrand Russell

Another version of same quote:

Another powerful quote:

“Bertrand Russell in 1959 on the two things he would like to say to the people of the future.”
