If you were charged with leaving a short message for future generations on how to live life, what would you say?
Would you be able to capture the essence of all that could be said in under two minutes? When asked to do just this, Mr. Bertrand Russell offered just two calm and sage prescriptions for how to survive in an increasingly globalized world. Thank goodness this little moment was time-capsuled.
Thanks for sharing. And thanks to Mr. Russell for saying.
Of course, glad it resonated.
I would say: “There’s nothing I can tell you that will help you more than what you discover for yourself.” But Mr. Russell’s ideas were also cool.
A very true sentiment Malcolm. Quite wise. Thanks for sharing!
Thanks for posting–very timely.
Glad it found you at time when you needed it Thomas. Thanks!
Once again… A spot-on post, well worth reblogging…!
Personally I would have nothing to say, but I would simply play ‘Imagine’ by John Lennon… the lyrics sum up my whole life philosophy…
Thanks Ant! And a great choice. Beautiful sentiments wrapped up in that song, for sure.
Thanks for sharing that slice out of the past. I think Mr. Russell summed up it all up very well.
Happy it struck a chord Kip. Thanks for sharing it as well!
My pleasure! I always try to share the stuff that really rings my bell, so to speak.
Reblogged this on Kip's Thoughts and commented:
A wise message from the past.
I just love Bertrand Russel. What a great find! Thank you for sharing 🙂
“If we are to live together, and not die together … ‘ So wise, and still the world seems to move in the opposite direction. Thank you for sharing!
