Arthur Schopenhauer Quotes

Arthur Schopenhauer was a 19th-century German Philosopher.  He is best known for his book “The World as Will and Representation.” He was one of the first western philosophers to affirm and share Indian philosophies of asceticism, the notion of self-denial, etc.

He was also interested in Buddhism, as he wrote about the enlightened pessimism he found in the religion. His words try to reason that there is a powerful force within us that drives our reason, moral sense, and logic.

This “Will-to-life” helps us to always thrust ourselves forward, look to our advantage, and cling to existence. His most fascinating proposition was his idea of love. In his eyes, love was neither accidental nor disproportionate as it is connected to our existence’s most crucial purpose- to have children.

He often said that he doesn’t understand the fuss about love affairs, and there should never be any profound seriousness with which anyone should pursue it.
