Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Life is a stage where the worst actor plays the king while the best actor the beggar.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “In truth the most striking figure for the relation of the two is that of the strong blind man carrying the sighted lame man on his shoulders.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “All happiness is of a negative rather than positive nature, and for this reason cannot give lasting satisfaction and gratification, but rather only ever a release from a pain or lack, which must be followed either by a new pain or by languor, empty yearning and boredom.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Honor means that a man is not exceptional; fame, that he is. Fame is something which must be won; honor, only something which must not be lost.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Many books serve merely to show how many ways there are of being wrong, and how far astray you yourself would go if you followed their guidance. You should read only when your own thoughts dry up...”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Whoever wants his judgment to be believed, should express it coolly and dispassionately; for all vehemence springs from the will. And so the judgment might be attributed to the will and not to knowledge, which by its nature is cold.”

Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “A great affliction of all Philistines is that idealities afford them no entertainment, but to escape from boredom they are always in need of realities.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Scholars are those who have read in books, but thinkers, men of genius, world-enlighteners, and reformers of the human race are those who have read directly in the book of the world.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “That arithmetic is the basest of all mental activities is proved by the fact that it is the only one that can be accomplished by a machine.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “That which has been exists no more; it exists as little as that which has never been.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “All striving comes from lack, from a dissatisfaction with one’s condition, and is thus suffering as long as it is not satisfied; but no satisfaction is lasting; instead, it is only the beginning of a new striving. We see striving everywhere inhibited in many ways, struggling everywhere; and thus always suffering; there is no final goal of striving, and therefore no bounds or end to suffering.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Opinion is like a pendulum and obeys the same law.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Authority and example lead the world.”

Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “To free a man from error is to give, not to take away. Knowledge that a thing is false is a truth. Error always does harm; sooner or later it will bring mischief to the man who harbors it.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Just as the witticism brings two very different real objects under one concept, the pun brings two different concepts, by the assistance of accident, under one word.”

Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Many undoubtedly owe their good fortune to the circumstance that they possess a pleasing smile with which they win hearts. Yet these hearts would do better to beware and to learn from Hamlet’s tables that one may smile, and smile, and be a villain.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Apart from man, no being wonders at its own experience.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “A man who has no mental needs, because his intellect is of the narrow and normal amount, is, in the strict sense of the word, what is called a philistine.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Belief is like love: it cannot be compelled; and as any attempt to compel love produces hate, so it is the attempt to compel belief which first produces real unbelief.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “The intellectual attainments of a man who thinks for himself resemble a fine painting, where the light and shade are correct, the tone sustained, the colour perfectly hamonized; it is true to life.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “A man’s face as a rule says more, and more interesting things, than his mouth, for it is a compendium of everything his mouth will ever say, in that it is the monogram of all this man’s thoughts and aspirations.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “I constantly saw the false and the bad, and finally the absurd and the senseless, standing in universal admiration and honour.”
