FRANCOIS LA ROCHEFOUCAULD

The heavens laugh with you in your jubilee;
My heart is at your festival,
My head hath its coronal,
The fulness of your bliss I feel--I feel it all.

William Wordsworth William Wordsworth (7 April 1770 - 23 April 1850) was a major English Romantic poet who, with Samuel Taylor Coleridge, helped to launch the Romantic Age in English literature with the 1798 joint publication Lyrical Ballads. Wordsworth's magnum opus is generally considered to be The Prelude, a semiautobiographical poem of his early years which the poet revised and expanded a number of times. The work was posthumously titled and published, prior to which it was generally known as the poem "to Coleridge". Wordsworth was England's Poet Laureate from 1843 until his death in 1850.

Till wak'd and kindled by the master's spell,
And feeling hearts[[ touch them but lightly[[pour
A thousand melodies unheard before.

Bertrand Russell http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bertrand_Russell
from wikipedia:
He was a prominent anti-war activist, championing free trade between nations and anti-imperialism.[5][6] Russell was imprisoned for his pacifist activism during World War I, campaigned against Adolf Hitler, for nuclear disarmament, criticised Soviet totalitarianism and the United States of America's involvement in the Vietnam War.[7]

In 1950, Russell was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, "in recognition of his varied and significant writings in which he champions humanitarian ideals and freedom of thought."[8]

English[1] philosopher, logician, mathematician, historian, and social critic.[2] Although he spent the majority of his life in England, he was born in Wales, where he also died.[3]

Russell led the British "revolt against idealism" in the early 1900s. He is considered one of the founders of analytic philosophy along with his protégé Wittgenstein and his elder Frege, and is widely held to be one of the 20th century's most important logicians.[2] He co-authored, with A. N. Whitehead, Principia Mathematica, an attempt to ground mathematics on logic. His philosophical essay "On Denoting" has been considered a "paradigm of philosophy."[4] Both works have had a considerable influence on logic, mathematics, set theory, linguistics, and philosophy.

I can sympathize with people's pains but not with their pleasures. There is something curiously boring about somebody else's happiness.
