Arthur Schopenhauer’s birthday
Originally shared by Richard Lee Byers
Happy birthday to Arthur Schopenhauer, born on this day in 1788!
“It would be better if there were nothing. Since there is more pain than pleasure on earth, every satisfaction is only transitory, creating new desires and new distresses, and the agony of the devoured animal is always greater than the pleasure of the devourer.”
A tad depressing, but we should bear in mind that Schopenhauer never tasted the McRib.
