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: “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: “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: “Because appearance remains appearance and does not become thing in itself.”

Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Reason is feminine in nature; it can only give after it has received.”

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: “A library may be very large; but if it is in disorder, it is not so useful as one that is small but well arranged. In the same way, a man may have a great mass of knowledge, but if he has not worked it up by thinking it over for himself, it has much less value than a far smaller amount which he has thoroughly pondered.”
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: “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: “If at any moment Time stays his hand, it is only when we are delivered over to the miseries of boredom.”
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: “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: “Caci avutia este ca apa sarata: cu cat bei cu atat ti-e mai este. La fel este si gloria.”

Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “The characteristic mark of minds of the first rank is the immediacy of all their judgements. Everything they produce is the result of thinking for themselves and already in the way it is spoken everywhere announces itself as such.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “There are tree main bulwarks of defence against new thoughts: to pay no heed, to give no credence, and finally to assert that it had already long existed.”

Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “You can never read bad literature too little, nor good literature too much.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Better alone than amongst traitors.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Life presents itself first and foremost as a task: the task of maintaining itself, the task of earning one’s living. If this task is accomplished, what has been gained is a burden, and there then appears a second task: that of doing something with it so as to ward off boredom, which hovers over every secure life like a bird of prey. Thus the first task is to gain something and the second to become unconscious of what has been gained, which is otherwise a burden.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Treat a work of art like a prince. Let it speak to you first.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Personal courage is really a very subordinate virtue-a virtue, indeed, in which we are surpassed by the lower animals; or else you would not hear people say, as brave as a lion.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “If you feel irritated by the absurd remarks of two people whose conversation you happen to overhear, you should imagine that you are listening to a dialogue of two fools in a comedy.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “It is, indeed, only in old age that intellectual men attain their sublime expression, whilst portraits of them in their youth show only the first traces of it.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Wicked thoughts and worthless efforts gradually set their mark on the face, especially the eyes.”
