Norbert Wiener writes: "Last night I attended the meeting of the Moral Sciences Club at Russell's rooms. Russell read a paper. The whole thing was very formal—the Club is large and unwieldy to be anything but formal." "I have a great dislike for Russell; I cannot explain it completely, but I feel a detestation for the man."

"His mind impresses one as a keen, cold, narrow logical machine, that cuts the universe into neat little packets, that measure, as it were, just three inches each way." "He is, nevertheless, within his limitations, a wonderfully accurate thinker."
