[Russell Quote of the Day, July 29, '14]
To edith - a poem
Bertrand Russell in YouTube
At every moment of life the civilised man is hedged about by restrictions of impulse: if he happens to feel cheerful he must not sing or dance in the street, while if he happens to feel sad he must not sit on the pavement and weep, for fear of obstructing pedestrian traffic. In youth his liberty is restricted at school, in adult life it is restricted throughout his working hours. All this makes zest more difficult to retain, for the continual restraint tends to produce weariness and boredom.
The Conquest of Happiness, 1930, chap. 11: Zest.
