2625. Voltaire's sudden clarification.     AR AR

Freedom  of  choosing  pleasures  is  the  most  important  one.  As  doing  something  that  brings  pleasure  means  being  free.

To stop being afraid of death and life, you have to realize that everything is for the best... For this I recommend you read Candide, Voltaire. Everything in this life is ordinary, especially suffering.

Voltaire teaches us that there is nothing to fear, including the non-fulfillment of our desires.  All vanity of vanities.  All our losses, gains, greatness, power, happiness, passions, desires and dreams, fears and pain, all this is ephemeral, coming and going.

As Walter said, taking up a pen is like going to war.  Therefore, the book "Variothoughts" is a book of war.  Life is war.

Reading  Voltaire's Candida, I noticed that those who said "Everything is for the best," and those who said that everything is for the worst, died, and the main character did not say anything, but accepted life as it is, coming to terms with it.  The main character survived, the rest all died in terrible agony.

When choosing a lesser evil, remember that size is not important for evil, it will kill you anyway.  The point of choosing the lesser evil is to stretch time.  Stretching time can give you a chance to escape.

If you ask something from someone, you have to agree with him and recognize it as truth, that is, reality.

The meaning of the statement that everything is for the best is not to breed demagoguery, but to let go of problems and tragedies, protecting yourself from resentment, self-pity and pity.  When something terrible happens, it is useful to reduce the importance of these events and treat everything as an inevitable providence of God.

The problem with philosophers is that they talk too much about the good, and do little real activity.

If you want someone  to save, you must be prepared for the fact that you can only save what you love and be ready to sacrifice yourself for the sake of the one you love.  Any act of salvation is an act of self-sacrifice.  And if you save good people, then both of you will be saved.  If you save bad people, then evil will survive, and you will be sacrificed.  If the good will  to save evil, then good will perish, sacrificing itself so that evil will live and multiply.

The good is tricky.  Goodness seeks to help everyone.  If the good helps the good, then it somehow unites and becomes stronger.  So that the good does not become too strong and does not turn into evil, there is a system of protection.  If good tries to help evil, then good will sacrifice itself and be destroyed, and evil will continue to live and prosper.  The attempt of good to subjugate evil with its good will not lead to success.  I call this situation – a scythe found on a stone.

The ideal is fragile as gold  the testicle.  To destroy the ideal, one small random mouse with a tail is enough.  The mouse will not even notice the ideal, will run past, accidentally touch it with its tail and destroy the priceless treasure, sending it straight to hell, where it belongs.

I noticed that there is not much difference between bad, good and best.  All these entities are constantly changing places and reborn into each other.  It seems to you that good things happen, and then it becomes bad.  It seems to you that bad things happen, and then it leads to bad things.  However, in general, all paths lead through hell to heaven, if you do not stop.

Everything is the same, I don't see much difference between good and bad.  A person will either learn to enjoy everything that is, or nothing will save his joy.  At the same time, if you know how to make fire from what is available, then any division into bad and good loses its meaning.

Don't judge.  About what?  About the future.  The future is uncertain.  The past  also, do not judge, because by definition it is true, which means it is good and true.  The present, too, for many reasons, is not desirable to judge.
