Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “The business of the novelist is not to relate great events, but to make small ones interesting.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “It is difficult, if not impossible, to define the limit of our reasonable desires in respect of possessions.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Virtue cannot be taught, no more than genius; indeed, concepts are as unfruitful for it as for art and of use only as tools.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “In action a great heart is the chief qualification. In work, a great head.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “People’s envy shows how unhappy they feel; their constant attention to the doings of others how bored they are.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “No one writes anything worth writing, unless he writes entirely for the sake of his subject.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “That which knows all things and is known by none is the subject.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “How shall a man be proud, when his conception is a crime, his birth a penalty, his life a labour, and death a necessity! –.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “The less one, as a result of objective or subjective conditions, has to come into contact with people, the better off one is for it.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “In our early youth we sit before the life that lies ahead of us like children sitting before the curtain in a theatre, in happy and tense anticipation of whatever is going to appear. Luckily we do not know what really will appear.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Hatred is an affair of the heart; contempt that of the head.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Great minds are related to the brief span of time during which they live as great buildings are to a little square in which they stand: you cannot see them in all their magnitude because you are standing too close to them.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Reading is a mere makeshift for original thinking.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Boredom is certainly not an evil to be taken lightly: it will ultimately etch lines of true despair onto a face. It makes beings with as little love for each other as humans nonetheless seek each other with such intensity, and in this way becomes the source of sociability.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “It is really most absurd to wish to turn this scene of misery into a pleasure spot and set ourselves the goal of achieving pleasures and joys instead of freedom from pain, as so many do. Those who, with too gloomy a gaze, regard this world as a kind of hell and, accordingly, are only concerned with procuring a fireproof room in it, are much less mistaken. The fool runs after the pleasures of life and sees himself cheated; the sage avoids evils.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Since everything which exists or happens for a man exists only in his consciousness and happens for it alone, the most essential thing for a man is the constitution of this consciousness, which is in most cases far more important than the circumstances which go to form its contents.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “In many cases hate a person is rooted in the involuntary estimate of its virtues.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Therefore it has always been said that music is the language of feeling and of passion, as words are the language of reason.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Truth is no harlot who throws her arms round the neck of him who does not desire her; on the contrary, she is so coy a beauty that even the man who sacrifices everything to her can still not be certain of her favors.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “For the purpose of acquiring gain, everything else is pushed aside or thrown overboard, for example, as is philosophy by the professors of philosophy.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Riches, one may say, are like sea-water; the more you drink the thirstier you become; and the same is true of fame.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Newspapers are the second hand of history.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Motives are causes experienced from within.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “To free a person from error is to give, and not to take away.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Every State looks upon its neighbours as at bottom a horde of robbers, who will fall upon it as soon as they have the opportunity.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “On account of its originality, excellence in every field strikes us as so new and so strange, that to recognize it at first glance will require not only understanding, but also education in the same discipline. As a rule, excellence achieves late recognition, all the later as the discipline is loftier, and those who truly enlighten humankind share the fate of the fixed stars, the light from which requires many years before it descends to the horizon.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “There is a wide difference between the original thinker and the merely learned man.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Whether we are in a pleasant or a painful state depends, finally, upon the kind of matter that pervades and engrosses our consciousness and what we compare it to – better and we envious and sad, worse and we feel grateful and happy.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “I have described religion as the metaphysics of the people.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Writers may be classified as meteors, planets, and fixed stars.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Men need some kind of external activity, because they are inactive within.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “It often happens that we blurt out things that may in some kind of way be harmful to us, but we are silent about things that may make us look ridiculous; because in this case effect follows very quickly on cause.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Fundamentally it is only our own basic thoughts that possess truth and life, for only these do we really understand through and through. The thoughts of another that we have read are crumbs from another’s table, the cast-off clothes of an unfamiliar guest.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Courage, however, may also be explained as a readiness to meet ills that threaten at the moment, in order to avoid greater ills that lie in the future; whereas cowardice does the contrary.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Of how many a man may it not be said that hope made a fool of him until he danced into the arms of death!”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “For what is our civilised world but a big masquerade? where you meet knights, priests, soldiers, men of learning, barristers, clergymen, philosophers, and I don’t know what all! But they are not what they pretend to be; they are only masks, and, as a rule, behind the masks you will find moneymakers.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “My body and my will are one.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Knowledge is to certain extent a second existence.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Therefore, we do not become conscious of the three greatest blessings of life as such, namely health, youth, and freedom, as long as we possess them, but only after we have lost them; for they too are negations.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “The little honesty that exists among authors is discernible in the unconscionable way they misquote from the writings of others.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “I owe what is best in my own development to the impression made by Kant’s works, the sacred writings of the Hindus, and Plato.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “We, the salt of the earth, should endeavor to follow, by never letting anything disturb us in the pursuit of our intellectual life, however much the storm of the world may invade and agitate our personal environment.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “It takes place, by and large, with the same sort of necessity as a tree brings forth fruit, and demands of the world no more than a soil on which the individual can flourish.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “The cause of laughter in every case is simply the sudden perception of the incongruity between a concept and the real objects which have been thought through it in some relation, and laughter itself is just the expression of this incongruity... All laughter then is occasioned by a paradox... This, briefly stated, is the true explanation of the ludicrous.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “For what a man is in himself, what accompanies him when he is alone, what no one can give or take away, is obviously more essential to him than everything he has in the way of possessions, or even what he may be in the eyes of the world. An intellectual man in complete solitude has excellent entertainment in his own thoughts and fancies, while no amount of diversity or social pleasure, theatres, excursions and amusements, can ward off boredom from a dullard.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “If there is anything in the world that can really be called a mans property, it is surely that which is the result of his mental activity.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Before you take anything away, you must have something better to put in its place.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Whenever we are not occupied in one of these ways, but cast upon existence itself, its vain and worthless nature is brought home to us; and this is what we mean by boredom.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Hence, in all countries the chief occupation of society is card-playing, and it is the gauge of its value, and an outward sign that it is bankrupt in thought. Because people have no thoughts to deal in, they deal cards, and try and win one another’s money. Idiots!”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “It is just as little necessary for the saint to be a philosopher as for the philosopher to be a saint; just as it is not necessary for a perfectly beautiful person to be a great sculptor, or for a sculptor to be himself a beautiful person. In general it is a strange demand on a moralist that he should commend no other virtue than that which he himself possesses.”
