“It is preoccupation with possession,
more than anything else,
that prevents men from living
freely and nobly.”

~ Bertrand Russell

A British philosopher, logician, mathematician, historian, and social critic. At various points in his life, he imagined himself in turn a liberal, a socialist, and a pacifist, but he also admitted that he had never been any of these things, in any profound sense. Though he spent most of his life in England, he was born in Wales, and died there at the age of 97.
