A certain sense of cruelty towards oneself and others is Christian; hatred of those who think differently; the will to persecute. Mortal hostility against the masters of the earth, against the 'noble', that is also Christian; hatred of mind, of pride, courage, freedom, libertinage of mind, is Christian; hatred of the senses, of joy in general, is Christian...

-Friedrich Nietzsche
Friedrich Nietzsche

The drive toward the formation of metaphors is the fundamental human drive, which one cannot for a single instant dispense with in thought , for one would thereby dispense with man himself.

Friedrich Nietzsche
The philosopher believes that the value of his philosophy lies in the whole, in the building: posterity discovers it in the bricks with which he built and which are then often used again for better building: in the fact, that is to say, that building can be destroyed and nonetheless possess value as material.
Friedrich Nietzsche

Nothing is more pathological in our pathological modernity than this disease of Christian pity.

Friedrich Nietzsche
Master-morality and Slave-morality.
Friedrich Nietzsche

I love him who seeks to create over and beyond himself and thus perishes.

Friedrich Nietzsche
Whenever I climb I am followed by a dog called 'Ego'.
Friedrich Nietzsche

What? A great man? I only ever see the ape of his own ideal.

Friedrich Nietzsche
Whether in conversation we generally agree or disagree with others is largely a matter of habit: the one tendency makes as much sense as the other.
Friedrich Nietzsche

Of all evil I deem you capable: Therefore I want good from you. Verily, I have often laughed at the weaklings who thought themselves good because they had no claws.

Friedrich Nietzsche
The reasons and purposes for habits are always lies that are added only after some people begin to attack these habits and to ask for reasons and purposes. At this point the conservatives of all ages are thoroughly dishonest: they add lies.
