French
L'humanité s'est transformée en une grande famille, donc nous ne pouvons pas assurer notre prospérité si nous ne garantissons pas la prospérité de tous. Si vous voulez être heureux, vous devez vous résigner à voir les autres aussi heureux.”
Bertrand Russell

German
Die Menschheit ist in einem solchen Maße zu einer großen Familie geworden, daß wir für unser eigenes Wohlergehen nicht mehr garantieren können, außer wir garantieren für das aller anderen auch. Wer für sich selbst glücklich sein will, muss, ob er nun will oder nicht, auch für das Glück der anderen sorgen.”
Bertrand Russell
