Range by David   Epstein
"Disclosure: I won this pre-release copy in a drawing from the publisher.

Bertrand Russell
“Do not fear to be eccentric in opinion, for every opinion now accepted was once eccentric.”
Bertrand Russell

Bertrand Russell
“There are two motives for reading a book; one, that you enjoy it; the other, that you can boast about it.”
Bertrand Russell

Douglas Adams
“All opinions are not equal. Some are a very great deal more robust, sophisticated and well supported in logic and argument than others.”
Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt

Bertrand Russell
“I believe that when I die I shall rot, and nothing of my ego will survive. I am not young and I love life. But I should scorn to shiver with terror at the thought of annihilation. Happiness is nonetheless true happiness because it must come to an end, nor do thought and love lose their value because they are not everlasting. Many a man has borne himself proudly on the scaffold; surely the same pride should teach us to think truly about man's place in the world. Even if the open windows of science at first make us shiver after the cosy indoor warmth of traditional humanizing myths, in the end the fresh air brings vigour, and the great spaces have a splendour of their own.”
Bertrand Russell

Mark Twain
“The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.”
Mark Twain
