„Most of the time man does not do what he wills, but what he has willed. Through his decisions, he always gives himself only a certain direction, in which he then moves until the next moment of reflection. We do not will continuously, we only will intermittently“

—  Otto Weininger

Collected Aphorisms
Contesto: Most of the time man does not do what he wills, but what he has willed. Through his decisions, he always gives himself only a certain direction, in which he then moves until the next moment of reflection. We do not will continuously, we only will intermittently, piece by piece. We thus save ourselves from willing: principle of the economy of the will. But the higher man always experiences this as thoroughly immoral.

„The highest expression of all morality is: Be!“

—  Otto Weininger

Collected Aphorisms

„Great men take themselves and the world too seriously to become what is called merely intellectual. Men who are merely intellectual are insincere; they are people who have never really been deeply engrossed by things and who do not feel an overpowering desire for production. All that they care about is that their work should glitter and sparkle like a well-cut stone, not that it should illuminate anything. They are more occupied with what will be said of what they think than by the thoughts themselves.“

—  Otto Weininger, libro Sex and Character

Große Männer nehmen sich selbst und die Dinge zu ernst, um öfter als gelegentlich »geistreich« zu sein. Menschen, die nichts sind als eben »geistreich«, sind unfromme Menschen; es sind solche, die, von den Dingen nicht wirklich erfüllt, an ihnen nie ein aufrichtiges und tiefes Interesse nehmen, in denen nicht lang und schwer etwas der Geburt entgegenstrebt. Es ist ihnen nur daran gelegen, daß ihr Gedanke glitzere und funkle wie eine prächtig zugeschliffene Raute, nicht, daß er auch etwas beleuchte! Und das kommt daher, weil ihr Sinnen vor allem die Absicht auf das behält, was die anderen zu eben diesen Gedanken wohl »sagen« werden—eine Rücksicht, die durchaus nicht immer »rücksichtsvoll« ist.
Origine: Sex and Character (1903), p. 104.

„Logic and ethics are fundamentally the same, they are no more than duty to oneself. They celebrate their union by the highest service of truth.“

—  Otto Weininger, libro Sex and Character

Logik und Ethik aber sind im Grunde nur eines und das-selbe.
Pflicht gegen sich selbst. Sie feiern ihre Vereinigung im höchsten Werte der Wahrheit...
Origine: Sex and Character (1903), p. 159.

„There are men who are willing to marry a woman they do not care about merely because she is admired by other men. Such a relation exists between many men and their thoughts.“

—  Otto Weininger, libro Sex and Character

Es gibt Männer, die imstande sind, eine Frau, die sie in keiner Weise anzieht, zu heiraten—bloß weil sie den anderen gefällt. Und solche Ehen gibt es auch zwischen so manchen Menschen und ihren Gedanken.
Origine: Sex and Character (1903), p. 104.

„Genius declares itself to be a kind of higher masculinity.“

—  Otto Weininger, libro Sex and Character

Origine: Sex and Character (1903), p. 111.
