  • One of Schopenhauer's designations for women
    Arthur Schopenhauer, ‘On Women’ in Essays and Aphorisms

    ----
    "At present we have only the choice of being hammer or anvil, and I was the kind of donkey who let a woman make a slave of him, do you understand?

    "The moral of the tale is this: whoever allows himself to be whipped, deserves to be whipped.

    "The blows, as you see, have agreed with me; the roseate supersensual mist has dissolved, and no one can ever make me believe again that these 'sacred apes of Benares'5 or Plato's rooster 6 are the image of God."
