The Search for Truth

“Education ought to foster the wish for truth, not the conviction that some particular creed is the truth.”
—Bertrand Russell (1872–1970)

Bertrand Arthur William Russell was a British philosopher, logician, mathematician, historian, writer, social critic, political activist, and Nobel laureate (Literature, 1950).
