Quotes on thought and action by Bertrand Russell

Oscar Bluhm Art

A habit of finding pleasure in thought rather than action is a safeguard against unwisdom and excessive love of power, a means of preserving serenity in misfortune and peace of mind among worries. A life confined to what is personal is likely, sooner or later, to become unbearably painful; it is only by windows into a larger and less fretful cosmos that the more tragic parts of life become endurable.”
Bertrand Russell, In Praise of Idleness: And Other Essays
