Personal Quote:

Idealistic people often become misanthropic when they are let down two or three times. Plato suggests it can be like that with the search for the meaning of the good. You shouldn't get disillusioned when you get knocked back. All you've discovered is that the search is difficult, and you still have a duty to keep on searching.

Trivia:

He was awarded the O.B.E. (Officer of the British Empire) in the 1995 Queen's Honours List for his services to literature. See more »
