I've been reading an e-book called "Dynamic Thought". Here are some selected quotes from the chapters that I've enjoyed:

"Every successful man is a man of "faith," every successful man is a man who cultivates "hope." A successful man is always hopeful, is never a pessimist and he brings that which he hopes for, into being and reality, by the strength of his faith."


"To other creatures, life and the visible world are fixed quantities. To man, life and the world are reflexes of inward mental states. Thus, can he make life what he will; thus can he live in a world of his own creating."


"There is no one in all the world just like you, and all that you do is colored by your individuality. No one in all the world could do your work just as you do it; there are fields of conquest in front of you which no one but you can conquer. Therefore listen to the voice of inspiration."


"Unto us is given the ability to govern a power whose extent we cannot gauge, to direct an intelligence so great that it is impossible for us to grasp its full significance."


"If you affirm that you are going to do a certain act, and then do not do it, even when your faithful subconscious mind gives you the helpful impulse, then you are destroying your mental powers root and branch. You are deliberately slamming the door of progress and achievement in your own face."


"He who overcomes himself, overcomes the world."


"Life is action, and if a man ceases to work he at once begins to disintegrate and soon requires six feet of earth wherein to cover his bones."

I would expect more from Nietzsche. He could have studied boredom more closely instead of trying to rid himself of it or flee from it. That is the way to dissolve it.

Preferred interpretation: the observation is on how life is dealt with. Not how Nietzsche experienced boredom. Look around you.

In this forum, Icelander's one of the few struggling with and suffering the issue at its root.

No, more than a favorite it's a quote I wanted to share in light of the previous quotes.

The favorite quotes I come up with wouldn't make sense here - they're too connected to the tradition of academic philosophy. That is, they're for another audience.

Any quotes I post - look for the interpretations with twists and gnashing humor.

Good stuff.

(All except for the Icecold comment. From what I perceive he doesn't struggle all that much.)

"That is the road we all have to take - over the Bridge of Sighs into eternity" -- Kierkegaard

"Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must remain silent." -- Wittgenstein

and the following four by Schopenhauer

"After your death you will be what you were before your birth."

"Talent hits a target no one else can hit; Genius hits a target no one else can see."

"Every man takes the limits of his own field of vision for the limits of the world."

"There is no absurdity so palpable but that it may be firmly planted in the human head if you only begin to inculcate it before the age of five, by constantly repeating it with an air of great solemnity."

And finally, appearing in the work of Vesalius



"Vivitur ingenio, caetera mortis erunt" - Intelligence lives on, the rest eventually dies.

Stephen Hawking has one like that:

Funny how that applies to Stephen Hawking and the public's use of his theories.
