Arthur Schopenhauer

22 Feb 1788 // 21 Sep 1860

The happiness which we receive from ourselves is greater than that which we obtain from our surroundings �. The world in which a man lives shapes itself chiefly by the way in which he looks at it.

On Anger: "For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind."
On Destiny: "Our destiny exercises its influence over us even when, as yet, we have not learned its nature: it is our future that lays down the law of our today."
Human, All Too Human
On Friendship: "A crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love."
