Arthur Schopenhauer Quote – “A man shows his character…”

A man shows his character just in the way in which he deals with trifles — for then he is off his guard. This will often afford a good opportunity of observing the boundless egoism of a man’s nature, and his total lack of consideration for others; and if these defects show themselves in small things, or merely in his general manner, you will find that they also underlie his action in matters of importance, and although he may disguise the fact… Do not trust him beyond your door.

Arthur Schopenhauer (1788 – 1860)
