What is freedom? It consists in two things: to know each his own limitations and accept them - that is the same thing as to know oneself, and accept oneself as one is, without fear, or envy, or distaste; and to recognise and accept the conditions under which one lives, also without fear or envy, or distaste. When you do this, you shall be free.More Ann Bridge quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
As soon as you start asking what education is for, what the use of it is, you're abandoning the basic assumption of any true culture, that education is worth while for its own sake.More Ann Bridge quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The full life depends, not on the range of experience but on the intensity of the interest, the emotion involved, and on its being a personal interest.More Ann Bridge quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
do get over the idea that size has any value or merit. It is the enemy of most of the best things in the world - it is the enemy of the good life.More Ann Bridge quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
America ... holds up its way of life as the ideal for every nation, and seeks to impose its own standards of living - which many people think ridiculously and unwholesomely high - on others, partly of course in the search for markets. If it were openly stated that it was just a search for markets, that would be one thing, but it is not; by a tremendous propaganda campaign this materialistic conception is held up as an ideal, as somehow part of liberty, and above all, as a form of happiness.More Ann Bridge quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
