Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “In truth the most striking figure for the relation of the two is that of the strong blind man carrying the sighted lame man on his shoulders.”

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: “Newspapers are the second hand of history. This hand, however, is usually not only of inferior metal to the other hands, it also seldom works properly.”

Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “I constantly saw the false and the bad, and finally the absurd and the senseless, standing in universal admiration and honour.”
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.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “The man never feels the want of what it never occurs to him to ask for.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Empirical sciences prosecuted purely for their own sake, and without philosophic tendency are like a face without eyes.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Men best show their character in trifles, where they are not on their guard. It is in the simplest habits, that we often see the boundless egotism which pays no regard to the feelings of others and denies nothing to itself.”
Arthur Schopenhauer Quote: “Scholars are those who have read in books, but thinkers, men of genius, world-enlighteners, and reformers of the human race are those who have read directly in the book of the world.”
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: “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.”
