Arthur Schopenhauer

Arthur Schopenhauer

was a German philosopher known for his pessimism and philosophical clarity
At the age of five years to enter a spinning-cotton or other factory, and from that time forth to sit there daily, first ten, then twelve, and ultimately fourteen hours, performing the same mechanical labour, is to purchase dearly the satisfaction of drawing breath. But this is the fate of millions, and that of millions more is analogous to it.More Arthur Schopenhauer quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
