Bertrand Russell - Collected Works and Essays
"The whole conception of God is a conception derived from the ancient Oriental despotisms. It is a conception quite unworthy of free men. When you hear people in church debasing themselves and saying that they are miserable sinners, and all the rest of it, it seems contemptible and not worthy of self- respecting human beings. (...) A good world needs knowledge, kindliness, and courage; it does not need a regretful hankering after the past or a fettering of the free intelligence by the words uttered long ago by ignorant men." The quote by Bertrand Russell
27 essays and articles on different subjects such as "Why I am not a Christian" and "Is there a God?" by Bertrand Russell.
