Quotations from Bertrand Russell:

 Every man, wherever he goes, is encompassed by a cloud of comforting convictions, which move with him like flies on a summer day.

BertrandáRussell, (1872 - 1970) British philosopher, logician & essayist



 There is much pleasure to be gained from useless knowledge.

BertrandáRussell, (1872 - 1970) British philosopher, logician & essayist
Useless Knowledge 



 The fact that an opinion has been widely held is no evidence whatever that it is not utterly absurd; indeed in view of the silliness of the majority of mankind, a widespread belief is more likely to be foolish than sensible.

BertrandáRussell, (1872 - 1970) British philosopher, logician & essayist
Marriage and morals (1929) 



 The fundamental cause of trouble in the world today is that the stupid are cocksure while the intelligent are full of doubt.

BertrandáRussell, (1872 - 1970) British philosopher, logician & essayist
"Christian Ethics" fromáMarriage and Moralsá(1950)
