Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Das Ganze der Erfahrung gleicht einer Geheimschrift und die Philosophie der Entzifferung derselben. The whole of experience is like a cryptograph, and philosophy is like the deciphering of it.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Society is in this respect like a fire-the wise man warming himself at a proper distance from it; not coming too close, like the fool, who, on getting scorched, runs away and shivers in solitude, loud in his complaint that the fire burns.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “The highest, most varied and lasting pleasures are those of the mind.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “A man may begin by following the craving of desire, until he comes to see how hollow and unreal a thing is life, how deceitful are its pleasures, what horrible aspects it possesses; and this it is that makes people hermits, penitents, Magdalenes.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “A precondition for reading good books is not reading bad ones: for life is short.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “The reason domestic pets are so lovable and so helpful to us is because they enjoy, quietly and placidly, the present moment.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “The cheapest kind of pride, on the other hand, is national pride. For it betrays in those affected by it the lack of individual qualities of which they could be proud, since they would otherwise not grasp at something that they share with so many millions. Rather those who possess significant personal qualities will recognize most clearly the faults of their own nation, since they constantly have them in front of them.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Consideration of the kind, touched on above, might, indeed, lead us to embrace the belief that the greatest wisdom is to make the enjoyment of the present the supreme object of life; because that is the only reality, all else being merely the play of thought. On the other hand, such a course might just as well be called the greatest folly: for that which in the next moment exists no more, and vanishes utterly, like a dream, can never be worth a serious effort.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “There is no happiness on earth to compare with that which a beautiful and fruitful mind finds in a propitious hour within itself.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Genius is the ability to leave entirely out of sight our own interest, our willing, and our aims, and consequently to discard entirely our own personality for a time, in order to remain pure knowing subject, the clear eye of the world; and this not merely for moments, but with the necessary continuity and conscious thought to enable us to repeat by deliberate art what has been apprehended and “what in wavering apparition gleams fix in its place with thoughts that stand for ever!”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Sociability belongs to the most dangerous, even destructive inclinations, since it brings us into contact with beings the great majority of whom are morally bad and intellectually dull or perverted.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Do not shorten the morning by getting up late, or waste it in unworthy occupations or in talk; look upon it as the quintessence of life, as to a certain extent sacred. Evening is like old age: we are languid, talkative, silly. Each day is a little life: every waking and rising a little birth, every fresh morning a little youth, every going to rest and sleep a little death.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Think what you’re doing! When you say I, I, I want to exist, it is not you alone that says this. Everything says it, absolutely everything that has the faintest trace of consciousness. It follows, then, that this desire of yours is just the part of you that is not individual – the part that is common to all things without distinction.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Martyrdom is the only way a man can become famous without ability.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “The doctor sees all the weakness of mankind; the lawyer all the wickedness, the theologian all the stupidity.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “The first forty years of life give us the text; the next thirty supply the commentary on it.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Happiness consists in frequent repetition of pleasure.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Do not shorten the morning by getting up late; look upon it as the quintessence of life, as to a certain extent sacred.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Any foolish boy can stamp on a beetle, but all the professors in the world cannot make a beetle.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “To desire immortality is to desire the eternal perpetuation of a great mistake.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “The greatest achievements of the human mind are generally received with distrust.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Where there is no love, a person’s faithfulness to the marriage bond is probably against nature.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Happiness belongs to those who are sufficient unto themselves. For all external sources of happiness and pleasure are, by their very nature, highly uncertain, precarious, ephemeral and subject to chance.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “The animal lacks both anxiety and hope because its consciousness is restricted to what is clearly evident and thus to the present moment: the animal is the present incarnate.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Genius lives only one storey above madness.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “To forgive and forget means to throw away dearly bought experience.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Again, you may look upon life as an unprofitable episode, disturbing the blessed calm of non-existence. And, in any case, even though things have gone with you tolerably well, the longer you live the more clearly you will feel that, on the whole, life is a disappointment, nay, a cheat.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “He who has lost all hope has also lost all fear;.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Indeed, intolerance is essential only to monotheism; an only God is by nature a jealous God who will not allow another to live. On the other hand, polytheistic gods are naturally tolerant, they live and let live.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Marrying means, to grasp blindfolded into a sack hoping to find out an eel out of an assembly of snakes.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “In early youth, as we contemplate our coming life, we are like children in a theatre before the curtain is raised, sitting there in high spirits and eagerly waiting for the play to begin.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Sleep is to a man what winding up is to a clock.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Will without intellect is the most vulgar and common thing in the world, possessed by every blockhead, who, in the gratification of his passions, shows the stuff of which he is made.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Boredom is just the reverse side of fascination: both depend on being outside rather than inside a situation, and one leads to the other.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “The fundament upon which all our knowledge and learning rests is the inexplicable.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Dissimulation is innate in woman, and almost as much a quality of the stupid as of the clever.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “The cheapest sort of pride is national pride; for if a man is proud of his own nation, it argues that he has no qualities of his own of which he can be proud;.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Every parting gives a foretaste of death; every remeeting a foretaste of the resurrection. That is why even people who are indifferent to each other rejoice so much if they meet again after twenty or thirty years of separation.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “A man of genius can hardly be sociable, for what dialogues could indeed be so intelligent and entertaining as his own monologues?”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Rudeness is better than any argument; it totally eclipses intellect.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Buying books would be a good thing if one could also buy the time to read them in: but as a rule the purchase of books is mistaken for the appropriation of their contents.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “The fruits of Christianity were religious wars, butcheries, crusades, inquisitions, extermination of the natives of America, and the introduction of African slaves in their place.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Politeness is to human nature what warmth is to wax.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “You can do what you will, but in any given moment of your life you can will only one definite thing and absolutely nothing other than that one thing.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “There is not a grain of dust, not an atom that can become nothing, yet man believes that death is the annhilation of his being.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Men need some kind of external activity, because they are inactive within. Contrarily, if they are active within, they do not care to be dragged out of themselves; it disturbs and impedes their thoughts in a way that is often most ruinous to them.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Always to see the general in the particular is the very foundation of genius.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Life is a task to be done. It is a fine thing to say defunctus est; it means that the man has done his task.”

Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “The longer a man’s fame is likely to last, the longer it will be in coming.”
