It is generally admitted that most grown-up people, however regrettably, will try to have a good time.”   —   Bertrand Russell

(He must have said this ages ago, because nowadays the “however regrettably” sounds a little alien.  With the increasing “Me Generation”, having a “good time” has become much more of a – for better, or for worse – priority.  Duty and selflessness have become secondary.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Yes, that choice of words was — regrettable. But I think your interpretation of Professor Russell’s quaint phrasing is sound. He had a very Victorian view of leisure; in most other regards, he was highly progressive.

    Apparently, a little too progressive for some tastes. And, like many Brits of his day, he was accused – by some – of anti-semitism. — YUR
