“…you are nevertheless irritating and unbearable, and I consider it most difficult to live with you. All of your good qualities become obscured by your super cleverness and are made useless to the world merely because of your rage at wanting to know everything better than others; of wanting to improve and master what you cannot command. With this you embitter the people around you, since no one wants to be improved in such a forceful way, lest of all by such an insignificant individual as you still are… If you were less like you, you would only be ridiculous, but thus as you are, you are highly annoying.”
Letter from Johanna  Schopenhauer to her  son Arthur Schopenhauer, dated 6 November 1807



“Every form of addiction is bad, no matter whether the narcotic be alcohol, morphine or idealism.”

“I´ve had enough of all this spiritual BS. I tried everything in my youth; meditation, prayer, etc. None of it actually alleviated my suffering and my pessimistic angst. None  of  it made me feel safer in a world plagued by constant danger and countless frightening uncertainties. I  think  religion is a façade intended to create a false sense of comfort in a reality devoid of comfort. All I´m left with today after walking the spiritual path is just  pain, boredom and weariness. Nuff  said.”
From Antinatalism, Pessimism And Higher Consciousness-FB



“Violence is not necessary to destroy a civilization. Each civilization dies from indifference toward the unique values which  created it.”
Nicolás Gómez Dávila




“Everyone who glorifies academia is a loser. Go to school, get a job, only then you´ll realize you´ve been scammed by the 9 to 5 pyramid scheme? It´s no wonder why y´all remain broke the rest of your life.”
From Antinatalism, Pessimism And Higher Consciousness-FB



“Being asked for what purpose he thought men were born, he laughingly replied: To realize how much better it were not to be born.”
Giacomo Leopardi, Operette Morali


“Your God is a Jew
Your music is black,
Your car is Japanese,
Your pizza is Italian,
Your gas is Algerian,
Your coffee is Brazilian,
Your numbers are Arab, your letters are Latin,
I am your neighbor. And yet you call me a foreigner?
Eduardo Galeano
Uruguayan author



“Ave Caesar, morituri te salutant! ('Hail Caesar, we who are about to die salute you!')
A group of gladiators gives the traditional salute to the Emperor in the Circus Maximus
From autor Rupert Matthews



“(Roman Emperor) Nero's predecessor Caligula was more in the habit of frightening others than of being scared himself. Caligula delighted in bloodthirsty practical jokes. He would often joke to dinner guests about having poisoned their wine, and sometimes actually did so just to add grim humour to the situation. When one nobleman was about to be thrown to the wild beasts in the arena, he screamed loudly at Caligula for mercy. The emperor had the man brought up to the Imperial seat as if to grant mercy, then killed him. “
