This letter to philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer from his mum is the ultimate parental burn
Burn of the week – that week being the first week in November 1807 – is this letter sent by author Johanna Schopenhauer to her son, German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer.
Next level doesn’t quite do it justice.
‘Schopenhauer’s mom just absolutely letting him hear it,’ said @doltery over on Twitter.
Goes out to parents homeschooling their kids everywhere (bit harsh? Yes, probably).
“A man can be himself only so long as he is alone; and if he does not love solitude, he will not love freedom; for it is only when he is alone that he is really free.”
– Arthur Schopenhauer
Makes more sense now.
