Claude Helvetius

French philosopher
The men of sense, the idols of the shallow, are very inferior to the men of passions. It is the strong passions which, rescuing us from sloth, impart to us that continuous and earnest attention necessary to great intellectual efforts. /idols/ Claude Helvetius quotes
