Thought for the day

“Now however much great and small worries fill up human life, and keep it in constant agitation and restlessness, they are unable to mask life’s inadequacy to satisfy the spirit; they cannot conceal the emptiness and superficiality of existence, or exclude boredom which is always ready to fill up every pause granted by care.” (Schopenhauer)

About Huenemann

Curious about the ways humans use their minds and hearts to distract themselves from the meaninglessness of life.
