Love is wise, hate is foolish

Bertrand Russell was a British philosopher, mathematician and writer, winner of a Nobel Prize in Literature and well known for his influence in analytical philosophy, his mathematics studies and his social activism.

When asked what he will tell, in a hundred years time, to our descendants about what he has learned throughout his life, Russell gives two answers: an intellectual one and a moral one. The intellectual pleads for objectivity in analysis and the moral one includes the sentence ‘Love is wise, hate is foolish’ which tells everything in itself to whom is willing to understand it.
