The essence of a higher education is the search for Ideas: for generalizations, laws of sequence, and ideals of development; behind things we must discover their relation and meaning, their mode and law of operation, the function and ideal they serve or adumbrate; we must classify and coordinate our sense experience in terms of law and purpose.
—  The Story of Philosophy: The Lives and Opinions of the World’s Greatest Philosophers, Will Durant
What better way is there no make men love one another than to make men understand one another. True charity comes only with clarity-just as mercy is but justice that understands. Surely the root of all evil is the inability to see clearly that which is.

ভারত এবং ভারতীয় ভাষা সম্পর্কে বিখ্যাত ঐতিহাসিক Will Durant বলেছেন:

India was the motherland of our race and Sanskrit the mother of European languages.

She was the mother of our philosophy ;

mother, through the Arabs,of much of our mathematics ;

mother,through Buddha of the ideals embodied in Christianity ;

mother,through the village community, of self government and democracy.

Mother India in many ways,is the mother of us all.

So much of our lives is meaningless, a self-canceling vacillation and futility; we strive with the chaos about us and within; but we would believe all the while that there is something vital and significant in us, could we but decipher our own souls.
—  Will Durant, The Story of Philosophy (1926)
Man is not willingly a political animal. The human male associates with his fellows less by desire than by habit, imitation, and the compulsion of circumstance; he does not love society so much as he fears solitude. He combines with other men because isolation endangers him, and because there are many things that can be done better together than alone; in his heart he is solitary individual, pitted heroically against the world. If the average man had had his way there would probably never have been any state. Even today he resents it, classes death with taxes, and yearns for that government which governs least. If he asks for many laws, it is only because he is sure that his neighbor needs them; privately he is an unphilosophical anarchist and thinks laws in his own case superfluous.

We cannot prove this freedom by theoretical reason; we prove it by feeling it directly in the crisis of moral choice. We feel this freedom as the very essence of our inner selves, of the “pure Ego”; we feel within ourselves the spontaneous activity of a mind moulding experience and choosing goals.
