Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “My body and my will are one.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “To free a person from error is to give, and not to take away.”
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: “Money alone is absolutely good, because it is not only a concrete satisfaction of one need in particular; it is an abstract satisfaction of all.”
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: “Men need some kind of external activity, because they are inactive within.”
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: “Therefore if egoism has a firm hold of a man and masters him, whether it be in the form of joy, or triumph, or lust, or hope, or frantic grief, or annoyance, or anger, or fear, or suspicion, or passion of any kind – he is in the devil’s clutches and how he got into them does not matter. What is needful is that he should make haste to get out of them; and here, again, it does not matter how.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “There is a wide difference between the original thinker and the merely learned man.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “The business of the novelist is not to relate great events, but to make small ones interesting.”
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: “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: “Writers may be classified as meteors, planets, and fixed stars.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Newspapers are the second hand of history.”
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: “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: “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: “I have described religion as the metaphysics of the people.”
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: “Our first ideas of life are generally taken from fiction rather than fact.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Reason is feminine in nature; it can only give after it has received.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “There is no absurdity so palpable but that it may be firmly planted in the human head if you only begin to inculcate it before the age of five, by constantly repeating it with an air of great solemnity.”
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: “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: “Motives are causes experienced from within.”
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: “The little honesty that exists among authors is discernible in the unconscionable way they misquote from the writings of others.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “He who truly thinks for himself is like a monarch, in that he recognizes no one over him. His judgements, like the decisions of a monarch, arise directly from his own absolute power. He no more accepts authorities than a monarch does orders, and he acknowledges the validity of nothing he has not himself confirmed.”
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: “If at any moment Time stays his hand, it is only when we are delivered over to the miseries of boredom.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Because appearance remains appearance and does not become thing in itself.”
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: “Before you take anything away, you must have something better to put in its place.”
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: “Knowledge is to certain extent a second existence.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “If you stroke a cat, it will purr; and, as inevitably, if you praise a man, a sweet expression of delight will appear on his face; and even though the praise is a palpable lie, it will be welcome, if the matter is one on which he prides himself.”
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: “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: “But inherited wealth reaches its utmost value when it falls to the individual endowed with mental powers of a high order, who is resolved to pursue a line of life not compatible with the making of money; for he is then doubly endowed by fate and can live for his genius; and he will pay his debt to mankind a hundred times, by achieving what no other could achieve, by producing some work which contributes to the general good, and redounds to the honor of humanity at large.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “The more distinctly a man knows, the more intelligent he is, the more pain he has; the man who is gifted with genius suffers most of all.”
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: “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 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: “It is the monotony of his own nature that makes a man find solitude intolerable.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “For as a rule a man must have worth in himself in order to recognise it and believe in it willingly and freely in others.”
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.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “God, who in the beginning was the creator, appears in the end as revenger and rewarder. Deference to such a God admittedly can produce virtuous actions; however, because fear of punishment or hope for reward are their motive, these actions will not be purely moral; on the contrary, the inner essence of such virtue will amount to prudent and carefully calculating egoism.”
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: “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: “You can know only what you have thought about.”
