Example Sentence (Quote)

".. .You could take up the line that some of the gnostics took up a line which I often thought was a very plausible one that as a matter of fact this world that we know was made by the devil at a moment when God was not looking. There is a good deal to be said for that, and I am not concerned to refute it." - Bertrand Russell

Example Sentence (Quote)

" [Freedom] is the greatest of political goods. I do not say freedom is the greatest of all goods: the best things come from within"”they are such things as creative art, and love, and thought. Such things can be helped or hindered by political conditions, but not actually produced by them; and freedom is, both in itself and in its relation to these other goods the best thing that political and economic conditions can secure." - Bertrand Russell

Example Sentence (Quote)

" [Messrs Ogden and Richards] will reply that they are considering the meaning of a thought, not of a word. A thought is not a social phenomenon, like speech, and therefore does not have the two sides, active and passive, which can be distinguished in speech. I should urge, however, that all the reasons which led our authors to avoid introducing images in explaining meaning should have also led them to avoid introducing thoughts. If a theory of meaning is to be fitted into natural science as they desire, it is necessary to define the meaning of words without introducing anything mental in the sense in which what is mental is not subject to the laws of physics. Therefore, for the same reasons for which I now hold that the meaning of words should be explained without introducing images which I argued to be possible in the above-quoted passage I also hold that meaning in general should be treated without introducing thoughts, and should be regarded as a property of words considered as physical phenomena. Let us therefore amend their theory. They say: 'I am thinking of A' is the same thing as 'My thought is being caused by A.' Let us substitute: 'I am speaking of A' is the same thing as 'My speech is being caused by A.' Can this theory be true?" - Bertrand Russell

Example Sentence (Quote)

" [One] must look into hell before one has any right to speak of heaven." - Bertrand Russell
