Notes, topics or text 

"Do you know, I have forgotten Bertrand Russell, meeting him and talking with him? All I remember is the impression he made on me, of a man who might be a great mathematician but had a curious adolescent love of shocking people, as when he said 'monogamy, that darling superstition of the non-conformist mind.' It is all wrong for my memory to hold that absurd remark and forget all the wise ones."
