    Schopenhauer’s saying, that “a man can do as he will, but not will as he will,” has been an inspiration to me since my youth up,

    The true value of a human being is determined primarily by the measure and the sense in which he has attained to liberation from the self.

    In politics not only are leaders lacking, but the independence of spirit and the sense of justice of the citizen have to a great extent declined.

    The health of society thus depends quite as much on the independence of the individuals composing it as on their close political cohesion.

    society is as unthinkable as the development of the individual personality without the nourishing soil of the community

    Let every man judge according to his own standards, by what he has himself read, not by what others tell him.

    The fairest thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion which stands at the cradle of true art and true science

    Heroism by order, senseless violence, and all the pestilent nonsense that goes by the name of patriotism—how I hate them!

    The really valuable thing in the pageant of human life seems to me not the State but the creative, sentient individual, the personality; it alone creates the noble and the sublime, while the herd as such remains dull in

    Compulsory military service seems to me the most disgraceful symptom of that deficiency in personal dignity from which civilized mankind is suffering to-day

    This topic brings me to that worst outcrop of the herd nature, the military system, which I abhor. That a man can take pleasure in marching in formation to the strains of a band is enough to make me despise him. He has only been given his big brain by mistake; a backbone was all he needed.
