American moral and social philosopher, writer
It seems that when we are oppressed by the knowledge of our worthlessness we do not see ourselves as lower than some and higher than others, but as lower than the lowest of mankind. We hate then the whole world, and we would pour our wrath upon the whole of creation.More Eric Hoffer quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
To a man utterly without a sense of belonging, mere life is all that matters. It is the only reality in an eternity of nothingness, and he clings to it with shameless despair.More Eric Hoffer quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is the stretched soul that makes music, and souls are stretched by the pull of opposites-opposite bents, tastes, yearnings, loyalties. Where there is no polarity-where energies flow smoothly in one direction-there will be much doing but no music.More Eric Hoffer quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
To the old, the new is usually bad news.
Eric HofferMore Eric Hoffer quotes [08/29/2011 02:08:52]
A rising mass movement attracts and holds a following not by its doctrine and promises but by the refuge it offers from the anxieties, barrenness and meaningless of an individual existence. It cures the poignantly frustrated not by conferring upon them an absolute truth or by remedying the difficulties and abuses which made their lives miserable, but by freeing them from their ineffectual selves and it does this by enfolding and absorbing them into a closely knit and exultant corporate whole.More Eric Hoffer quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
