“We must work for a world which we will never see.” – Bertrand Russell (May 18, 1872 to February 2, 1970)

Russell was a prominent philosopher, mathematician, historian, and activist. Russell was an anti-war activist for much of his life. He was jailed “for pacifist activism during World War I, attacked the U.S. for its involvement in the Vietnam War, and … was an outspoken proponent for nuclear disarmament.”  [Wikipedia].
