Oswald Spengler

Oswald Spengler

German idealist philosopher, historian and representative of the philosophy of life.
We have not chosen this time. We cannot help it if we are born as men of the early winter of full Civilization, instead of on the golden summit of a ripe Culture, in a Phidias or a Mozart time. Everything depends on our seeing our own position, our destiny, clearly, on our realizing that though we may lie to ourselves about it, we cannot evade it. He who does not acknowledge this in his heart, ceases to be counted among the men of his generation, and remains either a simpleton, a charlatan, or a pedant.More Oswald Spengler quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In place of a world, there is a city, a point, in which the whole life of broad regions is collecting while the rest dries up. In place of a type-true people, born of and grown on the soil, there is a new sort of nomad, cohering unstably in fluid masses, the parasitical city dweller, traditionless, utterly matter-of-fact, religionless, clever, unfruitful, deeply contemptuous of the countryman and especially that highest form of countryman, the country gentleman.More Oswald Spengler quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Every Socialist outbreak only blazes new paths for Capitalism.More Oswald Spengler quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
One cannot learn how to be creative by reading Marx. Either one is creative or one is not.More Oswald Spengler quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
To-day we live so cowed under the bombardment of this intellectual artillery(the media) that hardly anyone can attain to the inward detachment that is required for a clear view of the monstrous drama. The will-to-power operating under a pure democratic disguise has finished off its masterpiece so well that the object's sense of freedom is actually flattered by the most thorough-going enslavement that has ever existedMore Oswald Spengler quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
