Arthur Schopenhauer
“He who writes carelessly confesses thereby at the very outset that he does not attach much importance to his own thoughts. ”
Arthur Schopenhauer

Arthur Schopenhauer
“Treat a work of art like a prince: let it speak to you first.”
Arthur Schopenhauer

Arthur Schopenhauer
“It is difficult to find happiness within oneself, but it is impossible to find it anywhere else.”
Arthur Schopenhauer

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

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
