Bertrand Russel

After all, who that you failed to fulfill your purpose in life will endure as a benefactor of mankind? Ignorance, then, becomes a problem of fear, i.e. to be afraid to acquire knowledge, think, can disrupt our comfortable lifestyle, so busy with modernity, so fast, that doesn’t allow us to take the time of choosing a good book, or read a good article on the network, because that would boost us inevitably to change; Therefore, do not change, our interior tear between knowing what to do and not do. Bertrand Russel said it well: men fear thought more of what they are afraid of anything else in the world; more than ruin, even more than death. Thought is subversive and revolutionary, destructive and terrible. Thought is merciless to privilege, established institutions, and comfortable customs; the thought is anarchic and outside the law, indifferent to the authority, careless with the wisdom of the past.

But if the thought has to be possession of many, not the privilege of a few, we have dealing us with which fear. It is the fear which stops the man, fear that their endearing beliefs will not be illusions, fear that the institutions with which lives will not be harmful, fear that they themselves will not prove less worthy of respect for what they had expected. The challenge of thinking. But we live in the era of information and social networks, so we have one greater challenge than the of any other generation that has gone before us. If we are to be men and women of excellence, if we are going to live at the height of the principles that govern the quality of life, health and development, we must think about what we see, we read, we hear, etc., without allowing the information us drown without more, because ultimately it is we who chose. And to choose, by means of thorough reflection and practice of reading, we will find our own path, that which blows dreams, skills and contexts, and in the end will make the difference between having gone through life, without doing anything memorable, or having lived, always in search of personal, family and social excellence, as we have discovered our own vocation. Thinking is not an unconscious Act, less in thinking about our own development it is not. Thinking is set high standards for me, as an individual, and then live them in such a way that my around, others will be influenced, not to do what I do, but to raise the trap of mediocrity and enjoy life to the fullest, in search of the ideal always developed countries.
