Schopenhauer

“ . . . Were an Asiatic to ask me for a definition of Europe, I should be forced to answer him: it is that part of the world which is haunted by the incredible delusion that man was created out of nothing, and that his present birth is his first entrance into life.”

–Arthur Schopenhauer, Parerga and Paralipomena, II
