Arthur Schopenhauer – Faith is like love, it cannot be forced

Share this quote:
Arthur SchopenhauerFaith is like love, it cannot be forced. Therefore it is a dangerous operation if an attempt be made to introduce or bind it by state regulations; for, as the attempt to force love begets hatred, so also to compel religious belief produces rank unbelief.

Arthur Schopenhauer – What a man can do and suffer is unknown

Share this quote:
Arthur SchopenhauerWhat a man can do and suffer is unknown to himself till some occasion presents itself which draws out the hidden power. Just as one sees not in the water of an unruffled pond the fury and roar with which it can dash down a steep rock without injury to itself, or how high it is capable of rising; or as little as one can suspect the latent heat in ice-cold water.

Arthur Schopenhauer – To form a judgment intuitively

Share this quote:
Arthur SchopenhauerTo form a judgment intuitively is the privilege of few; authority and example lead the rest of the world. They see with the eyes of others, they hear with the ears of others. Therefore it is very easy to think as all the world now think; but to think as all the world will think thirty years hence is not in the power of every one.
