Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “If we were not all so interested in ourselves, life would be so uninteresting that none of us would be able to endure it.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “A man is never happy, but spends his whole life in striving after something that he thinks will make him so; he seldom attains his goal, and when he does, it is only to be disappointed; he is mostly shipwrecked in the end, and comes into harbour with mast and rigging gone. And then, it is all one whether he is happy or miserable; for his life was never anything more than a present moment always vanishing; and now it is over.”
