Arthur Schopenhauer
“The art of not reading is a very important one. It consists in not taking an interest in whatever may be engaging the attention of the general public at any particular time. When some political or ecclesiastical pamphlet, or novel, or poem is making a great commotion, you should remember that he who writes for fools always finds a large public. A precondition for reading good books is not reading bad ones: for life is short.”
Arthur Schopenhauer, Essays and Aphorisms

“Marrying means to halve one's rights and double one's duties”
Arthur Schopenhauer

“If we were not all so interested in ourselves, life would be so uninteresting that none of us would be able to endure it.”
Arthur Schopenhauer

Arthur Schopenhauer
“I have not yet spoken my last word about women. I believe that if a woman succeeds in withdrawing from the mass, or rather raising herself from above the mass, she grows ceaselessly and more than a man.”
Arthur Schopenhauer, Schopenhauer and the Wild Years of Philosophy

Arthur Schopenhauer
“The intellectual attainments of a man who thinks for himself resemble a fine painting, where the light and shade are correct, the tone sustained, the colour perfectly harmonised; it is true to life. On the other hand, the intellectual attainments of the mere man of learning are like a large palette, full of all sorts of colours, which at most are systematically arranged, but devoid of harmony, connection and meaning.”
Arthur Schopenhauer, Parerga and Paralipomena
