On The Ego And The World

'The world is my idea:' - this is a truth which holds good for everything that lives and knows, though man alone can bring it into reflective and abstract consciousness. If he really does this, he has attained philosophic wisdom.

- Arthur Schopenhauer, The World As Will And Idea, Vol. I, trans. R.B. Haldane and J. Kemp (Boston: Ticknor and Company, 1888).
