Will Durant (5 November 1885 – 7 November 1981)

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)
Analysis belongs to science, and gives us knowledge; Philosophy must provide a synthesis for wisdom. The sciences are the windows through which philosophy views the world.

Will Durant

We owe it to Schopenhauer that he revealed our secret hearts to us, showed us that our desires are the axioms of our philosophies, and cleared the way to an understanding of thought as no mere abstract calculation of impersonal  events, but as a flexible instrument of action and desire.“

- Will Durant, The Story of Philosophy (1926)

Christianity is not a segregated religion. It offered itself without restriction to all individuals, classes, and nations; it was not limited to one people, like Judaism, nor to the freemen of one state, like the official cults of Greece and Rome.

Will Durant

The rich have become so unsocial that those who own property had rather throw their possessions into the sea than lend aid to the needy, while those who are in poorer circumstances would less gladly find a treasure than seize the possessions of the rich

The Lessons of History. Chap. X Government and History

Will and Ariel Durant

So the first biological lesson of history is that life is competition. Competition is not only the life of trade, it is the trade of life—peaceful when food abounds, violent when the mouths outrun the food. Animals eat one another without qualm; civilized men consume one another by due process of law.
—  The Lessons of History by Will and Ariel Durant

“So the conservative who resists change is as valuable as the radical who proposes it – perhaps as much more as the roots are more vital than grafts. It is good that new ideas should be heard, for the sake of the few that can be used; but it is also good that new ideas should be compelled to go through the mill of objection, opposition, and contumely; this is the trial heat which innovations must survive before being allowed to enter the human race. It is good that the old should resist the young, and that the young should prod the old; out of this tension, as out of the strife of the sexes and the classes, comes a creative tensile strength, a stimulated development, a secret and basic unity and movement of the whole.”
