„Discipline is, in a manner, nothing else but the art of inspiring the soldiers with greater fear of their officers than of the enemy.“

De l'esprit or, Essays on the Mind, and Its Several Faculties (1758)
Kontext: Discipline is, in a manner, nothing else but the art of inspiring the soldiers with greater fear of their officers than of the enemy. This fear has often the effect of courage: but it cannot prevail against the fierce and obstinate valor of people animated by fanaticism, or warm love of their country.

„Men fear thought as they fear nothing else on earth – more than ruin, more even than death.“

—  Bertrand Russell logician, one of the first analytic philosophers and political activist 1872 - 1970

Kontext: Men fear thought as they fear nothing else on earth – more than ruin, more even than death. Thought is subversive and revolutionary, destructive and terrible; thought is merciless to privilege, established institutions, and comfortable habits; thought is anarchic and lawless, indifferent to authority, careless of the well-tried wisdom of the ages. Thought looks into the pit of hell and is not afraid. It sees man, a feeble speck, surrounded by unfathomable depths of silence; yet it bears itself proudly, as unmoved as if it were lord of the universe. Thought is great and swift and free, the light of the world, and the chief glory of man.
