Message to wealthy people

16 Oct

Ye stronger and arrogant intellects, we ask you but for one thing: do not throw another burden on our shoulders, but take some of our burden upon yours, since you, forsooth, are the stronger! But you delight in doing the reverse: for you wish to soar, wherefore we have to carry your burden in addition to ours: that is, we have to crawl.

Passionate people quote

12 Oct

Passionate people little think of what others may think; their frame of mind raises them above vanity.

posing as judge quote

10 Oct

As soon as somebody poses as judge, although he be no connoisseur, we ought forthwith to remonstrate, be he man or woman. Enthusiasm or delight in a thing or a human being are no arguments, neither are grudge and hatred against them.

Lying to yourself quote

10 Oct

Make it a rule never to withhold or conceal anything from yourself, anything that you might think against your own thoughts. It is the foremost requirement of honest reflection. Every day you must make it your duty to wage war against self. A victory and a conquered bulwark are no longer your concern but that of truth, but also your defeat is no longer your concern.

Knowing yourself quote

10 Oct

We must be honest towards ourselves and thoroughly acquainted with our inmost hearts, so as to be able to practice upon others that humane dissimulation which is called love and kindness.

Quote about morale

5 Oct

We do not look upon animals as upon moral beings. But do you for a moment suppose that animals consider us to be moral beings ? An animal, which could speak, has said: ” Humanity is a prejudice we animals at least do not suffer from.”

Weather quote

25 Sep

A very unusual and unsettled weather makes men suspicious, even of one another; at the same time they grow fond of innovations, having to part with their old habits. Wherefore despots fancy those regions where the weather is moral.

Reviewing the day

19 Sep

He who reviews his day`s and life`s work when he is weary and worn out, generally arrives at a melancholy conclusion: this, however, is not the fault of day and life, but of weariness. In the midst of our work, and even our pleasures, we usually find no leisure to muse over life and existence: but should this for once actually happen, we should no longer concede the point to him who was waiting for the seventh day and for rest to find all things in existence very beautiful- he had missed the right moment.

Good-natured people

18 Sep

The good-natured have acquired their character from the constant dread of foreign encroachments in which their ancestors lived;- who were in the habit of mitigating, appeasing, apologizing, preventing, diverting, flattering, humbling themselves, concealing both grief and anger, smoothing their features, – and ultimately bequeathed this whole delicate and successful mechanism to their children and grandchildren. These, thanks to a more propitious fate, had no occasion for that permanent dread: nevertheless they continue in the same groove.
