p.95   From a financial point of view also the ending of the War was very advantageous to me. While I was writing Principia Mathematica I felt justified in living on inherited money, though I did not feel justified in keeping an additional sum of capital that I inherited from my grandmother. I gave away this sum in its entirety, some to the University of Cambridge, some to Newnham College, and the rest to various educational objects. After parting with the debentures that I gave to Eliot, I was left with only about £ 100 a year of unearned money, which I could not get rid of as it was in my marriage settlement. This did not seem to matter, as I had become capable of earning money by my books. In prison, however, while I was allowed to write about mathematics, I was not allowed to write the sort of book by which I could make money. I should therefore have been nearly penniless when I came out but for the fact that Sanger and some other friends got up a philosophical lectureship for me in London. With the ending of the War I was again able to earn money by writing, and I have never since been in serious financial difficulties except at times in America.   Added by: Dominique Meeùs

p.200   I am afraid you may be disappointed that I am not more of an apostle of science, but as I grow older, and no doubt as a result of the decay of my tissues, I begin to see the good life more and more as a matter of balance and to dread all over-emphasis upon any one ingredient.   Added by: Dominique Meeùs

Je ne suis pas convaincu quant au fait que le vieillissement biologique conduirait nécessairement à des points de vue plus dialectiques, moins unilatéraux, mais j’apprécie l'arrière-plan matérialiste de sa thèse.   Added by: Dominique Meeùs  (2010-03-17 20:28:20)
p.201   I think people who are unhappy are always proud of being so, and therefore do not like to be told that there is nothing grand about their unhappiness. A man who is melancholy because lack of exercise has upset his liver always believes that it is the loss of God, or the menace of Bolshevism, or some such dignified cause that makes him sad.   Added by: Dominique Meeùs
