The best life is one in which the creative impulses play
the largest part and the possessive impulses the smallest.

Bertrand Russell Quotes of the Day 366
[Russell Quote of the Day, Aug. 18, '16]

Romantic love, as it appears in the Middle Ages, was not directed, at first, towards women with whom the lover could have either legitimate or illegitimate sexual relations ; it was directed towards women of the highest respectability, who were separated from their romantic lovers by insuperable barriers of morality and convention. So thoroughly had the Church performed its task of making men feel sex inherently impure, that it had become impossible to feel any poetic sentiment towards a lady unless she was regarded as unattainable. Accordingly love, if it was to have any beauty, had to be platonic.
From: Bertrand Russell: Marriage and Morals, 1929..
