LD: These excerpts from the Essays and Aphorisms of the German philosopher Schopenhauer will provide endless delight to the misogynists thronging our site. They have been selected by Henry Makow, the distinguished Canadian anti-feminist.
Given his hatred of women, it is not surprising that Schopenhauer was one of the gloomiest pessimists who ever lived. Dour and grim faced, steeped in perpetual melancholy, the famous philosopher would cross the street hurriedly if ever he saw a pretty woman approaching — and if she was prettier than average, he would hide in a shop doorway or scamper off like a frightened rabbit.
Poor Schoppy! Maybe his Mama didn’t breast-feed him or he got the wrong kind of potty training!
