Arthur Schopenhauer
“Truth is no prostitute, that throws herself away upon those who do not desire her; she is rather so coy a beauty that he who sacrifices everything to her cannot even then be sure of her favour.”
Arthur Schopenhauer

Arthur Schopenhauer
“After your death, you will be what you were before your birth.”
Arthur Schopenhauer

Tom Wolfe
“You never realize how much of your background is sewn into the lining of your clothes.”
Tom Wolfe

Joseph Addison
“Our real blessings often appear to us in the shape of pains, losses and disappointments; but let us have patience and we soon shall see them in proper figures.”
Joseph Addison

Arthur Schopenhauer
“And to this world, to this scene of tormented and agonised beings, who only continue to exist by devouring each other, in which, therefore, every ravenous beast is the living grave of thousands of others, and its self-maintenance is a chain of painful deaths; and in which the capacity for feeling pain increases with knowledge, and therefore reaches its highest degree in man, a degree which is the higher the more intelligent the man is; to this world it has been sought to apply the system of optimism, and demonstrate to us that it is the best of all possible worlds. The absurdity is glaring.”
Arthur Schopenhauer, The World as Will and Representation, Vol. 1
