In the work of Arthur Schopenhauer, misanthropic and pessimistic thinker reviled by his bitter invective, the reader will find candid thoughts that accompany peacefully passing day. But go wrong with the author searches only a bitter view of life, severe diagnoses of the era in which he lived or even, ultimately, an exhortation to suicide. As shown in this selection of texts by Ernst Ziegler, which stems from his thinking is the conviction that we must begin to live again every day, because it is an art to stay alive.
"The only form of existence is the present moment, it is also more secure possession, one that no one can ever take away." Arthur Schopenhauer
