Aftereffects of... something, I guess
My current mood is odd. I've never read a single line by Schopenhauer.

Current Mood: Schopenhauerian
Current Music: Allegri -- Miserere

At least one. And it even had a jumping hare in it.

Taken from my second LJ post ever, which is a very silly one and hence not linked to (though, alas, findable)

"...but it might just be the only quote from a Philosophy book that contains the word "Kangaroo". And as a student of both Biology and Philosophy - it thrills me endlessly

"Certain animal forms, such as apes, kangaroos, jumping-hares etc, sometimes appear to us ludicrous because something about them resembling man leads us to subsume them under the conception of the human form, and starting from this we perceive their incongruity with it"

* * *

And you have even commented to that post. So at least one line (with a kangaroo!), you have read.
