Bertrand Russell Quotes(バートランド・ラッセルの名言・警句)


Shaw, like many witty men, considered wit an adequate substitute for wisdom. He could defend any idea, however silly, so cleverly as to make those who did not accept it look like fools. 1 met him once at an "Erewhon Dinner" in honor of Samuel Butler and I learned with surprise that he accepted as gospel every word uttered by that sage, and even theories that were only intended as jokes, as, for example, that the Odyssey was written by a woman.
