Arthur Schopenhauer

“What give all that is tragic, whatever its form, the characteristic of the sublime, is the first inkling of the knowledge that the world and life can give no satisfaction, and are not worth our investment in them. The tragic spirit consists in this. Accordingly it leads to resignation.”


Arthur Schopenhauer, The World as Will and Representation, Vol. 1
