Schopenhauer wrote:
Great men are like eagles, and build their nest on some lofty solitude.

Schopenhauer wrote:
A man can be himself only so long as he is alone, and if he does not love solitude, he will not love freedom, for it is only when he is alone that he is really free.

Schopenhauer wrote:
To live alone is the fate of all great souls.

'There is no surer sign of greatness than when a man refuses to take any notice of offensive or insulting remarks,

in that he simply attributes them ... to the poor knowledge of the speaker and, therefore, merely perceives them without feeling them.'

– Schopenhauer
(PP, v.2, ch.XXVI)

PostSubject: Re: Quotes    Thu Feb 26, 2015 7:40 am

'Among all the arts poetry holds the highest rank. ...
It expands the mind: for it sets imagination free, and offers us ... that form which links the exhibition of the concept with a wealth of thought to which no linguistic expression is completely adequate, and so poetry rises aesthetically to ideas.'

– ‪Kant‬
(CJ, Pt 1, §53, 1790AD)

You alone do we worship, and You alone do we ask for help.
Guide us on the straight path,
the path of those who have received your grace;
not the path of those who have brought down wrath, nor of those who wander astray.
Amen.

Excerpt from Perfect Discourse wrote:
"And if you (Asclepius) wish to see the reality of this mystery, then you should see the wonderful representation of the intercourse that takes place between the male and the female. For when the semen reaches the climax, it leaps forth. In that moment, the female receives the strength of the male; the male, for his part, receives the strength of the female, while the semen does this.

"Therefore, the mystery of intercourse is performed in secret, in order that the two sexes might not disgrace themselves in front of many who do not experience that reality. For each of them (the sexes) contributes its (own part in) begetting. For if it happens in the presence of those who do not understand the reality, (it is) laughable and unbelievable. And, moreover, they are holy mysteries, of both words and deeds, because not only are they not heard, but also they are not seen.

"Therefore, such people (the unbelievers) are blasphemers. They are atheistic and impious. But the others are not many; rather, the pious who are counted are few. Therefore, wickedness remains among (the) many, since learning concerning the things which are ordained does not exist among them. For the knowledge of the things which are ordained is truly the healing of the passions of the matter. Therefore, learning is something derived from knowledge.

"But if there is ignorance, and learning does not exist in the soul of man, (then) the incurable passions persist in it (the soul). And additional evil comes with them (the passions), in the form of an incurable sore. And the sore constantly gnaws at the soul, and through it the soul produces worms from the evil, and stinks. But God is not the cause of these things, since he sent to men knowledge and learning.

PostSubject: Re: Quotes    Thu Mar 26, 2015 7:05 am

"I would even allow myself to rank philosophers according to the quality of their laughing—up to those who are capable of golden laughter. And supposing that Gods also philosophise, which I am strongly inclined to believe, owing to many reasons—I have no doubt that they also know how to laugh thereby in an overman-like and new fashion—and at the expense of all serious things! Gods are fond of ridicule: it seems that they cannot refrain from laughter even in holy matters."

-Friedrich Nietzsche, Beyond Good and Evil, §294
