Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “The brain may be regarded as a kind of parasite of the organism, a pensioner, as it were, who dwells with the body.”

Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “To call the world God is not to explain it; it is only to enrich our language with a superfluous synonym.”

Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “A man can do as he will, but not will as he will.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “The result is that much reading robs the mind of all elasticity, as the continual pressure of a weight does a spring, and that the surest way of never having any thoughts of your own is to pick up a book every time you have a free moment. The practice of doing this is the reason erudition makes most men duller and sillier than they are by nature and robs their writings of all effectiveness: they are in Pope’s words: For ever reading, never to be read.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Life is an unpleasant business. I have resolved to spend mine reflecting on it.”

Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Opinion is like a pendulum and obeys the same law. If it goes past the centre of gravity on one side, it must go a like distance on the other; and it is only after a certain time that it finds the true point at which it can remain at rest.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “In general, however, grand opera, by more and more deadening our musical receptivity through its three-hours duration and at the same time putting our patience to the test through the snail’s pace of what is usually a very trite action, is in itself intrinsically and essentially boring; which failing can be overcome only by the excessive excellence of an individual achievement: that is why in this genre only the masterpieces are enjoyable and everything mediocre is unendurable.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Obstinacy is the result of the will forcing itself into the place of the intellect.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “If a man sets out to hate all the miserable creatures he meets, he will not have much energy left for anything else; whereas he can despise them, one and all, with the greatest ease.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Necessity is the constant scourge of the lower classes, ennui of the higher ones.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “The mother of useful arts is necessity; that of the fine arts is luxury. For father the former has intellect; the latter genius, which itself is a kind of luxury.”

Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “There are, first of all, two kinds of authors: those who write for the subject’s sake, and those who write for writing’s sake.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “He who can see truly in the midst of general infatuation is like a man whose watch keeps good time, when all clocks in the town in which he lives are wrong. He alone knows the right time; what use is that to him?”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “If you want to earn the gratitude of your own age you must keep in step with it. But if you do that you will produce nothing great. If you have something great in view you must address yourself to posterity: only then, to be sure, you will probably remain unknown to your contemporaries; you will be like a man compelled to spend his life on a desert island and there toiling to erect a memorial so that future seafarers shall know he once existed.”
