Two more quotations from Will Durant

“When he lost at his favorite game of billiards, he denounced his opponent for devoting so much time to such a game as to have become an expert in it.”  – describing Herbert Spencer

“Spencer’s idea of tragedy was a theory killed by a fact.”

from The Story of Philosophy1926, pp. 270-71.
