Schopenhauer VI

“the poet, and even more the philosopher, in whom thought has attained such a degree that, neglecting individual phenomena in existence, he stands in wonder before existence itself, before this mighty sphinx, and makes of it his problem.”

‘On Psychology’, Parerga and Paralipomena (1851), trans. R. J. Hollindgale (1970).
