Arthur Schopenhauer – What a man can do and suffer is unknown

Share this quote:
Arthur SchopenhauerWhat a man can do and suffer is unknown to himself till some occasion presents itself which draws out the hidden power. Just as one sees not in the water of an unruffled pond the fury and roar with which it can dash down a steep rock without injury to itself, or how high it is capable of rising; or as little as one can suspect the latent heat in ice-cold water.

It’s not a field, I think, for people who need to have success every day: if you can’t live with a nightly sort of disaster, you should get out. I wouldn’t describe myself as lacking in confidence, but I would just say that. . . the ghosts you chase you never catch.

John Malkovich   (1953-)
