    Re: coffee with schopenhauer

    If the immediate and direct purpose of our life is not suffering then our existence is the most ill-adapted to its purpose in the world: for it is absurd to suppose that the endless affliction of which the world is everywhere full, and which arises out the need and distress pertaining essentially to life, should be puposeless and purely accidental. Each individual misfortune, to be sure, seems an exceptional occurance; but misfortune in general is the rule.

    Arthur Schopenhauer

    Re: coffee with schopenhauer

    maybe its because i am european...maybe its because i'm scottish.. but the fact that governments dont govern, banks steal and comics tell the truth is old hat too me,,, the trick is working out how to change it with the minimum of damage

    peace

    ps...and Schopenhauer really needs to work on his messaging.... that is quite the most insanly difficult paragraph to read... and I am no idiot :-)

    hi don, thanks for looking at the videos. when i'm in the right mood, they're fun to make.

    ah, kevin, as for schopenhauer and messaging philosophers are like magicians, they don't like to reveal their secrets
