Schopenhauer on Man's Big Surprise at Existing

Arthur Schopenhauer | German philosopher | Britannica
A man finds himself, to his great astonishment, suddenly existing, after thousands of years of non-existence; he lives for a little while; and then, again, comes an equally long period when he must exist no more. The heart rebels against this, and feels that it cannot be true.
- Arthur Schopenhauer
