Russell: three passions …




What I have Lived For。.

Bertrand Russell  。.



Three passions, simple but overwhelmingly strong, have 。.


 my life: the longing for love, the search for knowledge, and unbearable pity for the suffering of mankind。. These passions, like great winds, have blown me 。.


 and thither, in a 。.


 course, over a deep ocean of 。.


, reaching to the very verge of despair。.

         I have 。.


 love, first, because it brings 。.


—ecstasy so great that I would often have sacrificed all the rest of my life for a few hours for this joy。. I have sought it, next, because it relieves loneliness—that terrible loneliness in which one 。.


 consciousness looks over the 。.


 of the world into the cold。.


 lifeless 。.


I have sought it, finally, because in the union of love I have seen, in a mystic。.


, the 。.


 vision of the heaven that saints and poets have imagined。. This is what I sought, and though it might seem too good for human life, this is what—at least—I have found。.

         With equal passion I have sought knowledge。. I have wished to understand the hearts of men。. I have wished to know why the stars shine。.。.


 above the 。.


A little of this, but not much, I have achieved。.

         Love and knowledge, so far as they were possible, led upward toward the heavens。. But always pity it brought me back to earth。. Echoes of cries of pain 。.


 in my heart。. Children in famine, victims。.


 by oppressors, helpless old people a hated burden to their sons, and the whole world of loneliness, poverty, and pain make a 。.


 of what human life should be。. I long to alleviate the evil, but I cannot, and I too suffer。.

        This has been my life。. I have found it worth living, and would gladly live it again if the chance were offered me。.


Why am I born (translated by three passions).
