This week’s tip is actually a quote from Bertrand Russell:
- One should as a rule respect public opinion in so far as is necessary to avoid starvation and to keep out of prison, but anything that goes beyond this is voluntary submission to an unnecessary tyranny, and is likely to interfere with happiness in all kinds of ways.
- Bertrand Russell,Â Conquest of Happiness (1930) ch. 9
British author, mathematician, & philosopher (1872 – 1970)
Letting someone else define for you what is allowed in your art will never lead to personal happiness.
