Schopenhauer quote Shallit, Jeffrey Aug 01, 2009
Yes, it is a misattribution. There is no quote of that form in Schopenhauer's works. He did say something along those lines, namely,

"To truth only a brief celebration of victory is allowed between the two long periods during which it is condemned as paradoxical, or disparaged as trivial. "
