History of Western Philosophy by Bertrand Russell
“The citizens of Athens, like those of other cities in other ages and continents, showed a certain hostility to those who attempted to introduce a higher level of culture than that to which they were accustomed.”
Bertrand Russell
Ali shared a quote
History of Western Philosophy by Bertrand Russell
“The search for something permanent is one of the deepest of the instincts leading men to philosophy. It is derived, no doubt, from love of home and desire for a refuge from danger; we find, accordingly, that it is most passionate in those whose lives are most exposed to catastrophe.”

Bertrand Russell
“Prudence versus passion is a conflict that runs through history. It is not a conflict in which we ought to side wholly with either party.”
Bertrand Russell, History of Western Philosophy

Bertrand Russell
“Uncertainty, in the presence of vivid hopes and fears, is painful, but must be endured if we wish to live without the support of comforting fairy tales.”
Bertrand Russell, History of Western Philosophy: Collectors Edition

Lesley Hazleton
“Those who are comfortably established in life tend to have no need to ask what it means. They are the insiders, and for them, how things are is how they should be. The status quo is so much a given that it goes not just unquestioned but unseen, and the blind eye is always turned. It is those whose place is uncertain, and who are thus uneasy in their existence, who need to ask why. And who often come up with radically new answers.”
Lesley Hazleton, The First Muslim: The Story of Muhammad
