Bertrand Russell was one of the most influential philosophers and public intellectuals of the 20th century. At the beginning of his autobiography, he declared: “There are three simple but extremely intense passions that govern my life. That is the desire for love, the pursuit of knowledge, and the pity for human suffering.” He used this sentence. Explain his many marriages and derailments, his outstanding intellectual achievements and his numerous honors, including the Nobel Prize in Literature.
But in the eyes of Russell’s lovers, he is not so perfect, even very selfish: “His hands are like bear’s paws – no feelings, only strength. His intelligence is strong, but hanging in the air, and there is no emotional life. Relationship. Under normal circumstances, his ideal is abstract, with mathematical characteristics. If he pays attention to others, his mind is easily dominated by passion, which is tragic and pessimistic.” Colette said: “Russell is superb, Let other men be exhausted; emotionally strong, exhausting women. He exhausted his friends, drained their energy, and turned from one person to another, never giving anyone real happiness. Or never found anything happy.”
