One of the greatest philosophers of the nineteenth century, Schopenhauer (1788-1860) believed that human action is determined not by reason but by 'will' - the blind and irrational desire for physical existence.
This selection of his writings on religion, ethics, politics, women, suicide, books and many other themes is taken from Schopenhauer's last work, Parerga and Paralipomena, which he published in 1851.
They'll always be your friend no matter what and you and that person need to realize that and stick together.
Take two kids, for example, who have been best friends since the first grade.
If the other friend isn't there for them, then it can be really hard. A second aphorism is, "It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle if it's been through a blender first," by Les Barker. Once you've been through some really tough times, the impossible is now possible. For a third aphorism, I chose, "If you come to a fork in the road, take it," by Yogi Berra. He's saying that if you come to a situation in life where you have different opportunities, make sure you take advantage of them, because who knows, it might be a once in a life time opportunity.
Later on in life, you may be sorry for the choices you've made.
Later in high school, one of the two friends is heading downhill with their life.
This is a time when the friend needs the other friend the most.
Many of the writings are selected from Schopenhauer’s last publication, Parerga and Paralipomena, which was published in 1851.
Though his writings were not exceptionally well known during his lifetime, Schopenhauer’s thoughts and writing became much more popular after his time.
