Schopenhauer, Arthur: The Wisdom of Life, LIT v1, 28 March 2010.
Arthur Schopenhauer [1788–1860]
The Wisdom of Life [Being the First Part of “Aphorismen zur Lebensweisheit.”]
Translated by T. Bailey Saunders, M.A. [1860–1928]
The opening passage:
“In these pages I shall speak of The Wisdom of Life in the common meaning of the term, as the art, namely, of ordering our lives so as to obtain the greatest possible amount of pleasure and success; an art the theory of which may be called Eudaemonology, for it teaches us how to lead a happy existence.”
I started with the Project Gutenberg text but referred to various scans in The Internet Archive, so as to restore some incomplete footnotes. I have renumbered the footnotes, moved them to the end, and linked them.

Nice job - I even stole (in a non-pirate sort of way) a quote for my signature.
