Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “This is the case with many learned persons; they have read themselves stupid.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “You should deal sternly and despotically with your memory, so that it does not unlearn obedience; if, for example, you cannot call something to mind, a line of poetry or a word perhaps, you should not go and look it up in a book, but periodically plague your memory with it for weeks on end until your memory has done its duty. For the longer you have had to rack your brains for something the more firmly will it stay once you have got it.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “The greatest wisdom consists in enjoying the present and making this enjoyment the goal of life, because the present is all that is real and everything else merely imaginary. But you could just as well call this mode of life the greatest folly: for that which in a moment ceases to exist, which vanishes as completely as a dream, cannot be worth any serious effort.”

Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “It is with trifles, and when he is off guard, that a man best reveals his character.”
