Art depends upon the inexactitude of sight.

-Friedrich Nietzsche
Friedrich Nietzsche

There are no moral phenomena at all, but only a moral interpretation of phenomena.

Friedrich Nietzsche
Once and for all, there are many things I choose not to know.--Wisdom sets limits even to knowledge.
Friedrich Nietzsche

I do not mean to moralise but to those who do, I would give this advice : if you mean ultimately to deprive the best things and states of all all honour and worth then continue to talk about them as you have been doing!

Friedrich Nietzsche
Willing emancipateth: that is the true doctrine of will and emancipation - so teacheth you Zarathustra. No longer willing, and no longer valuing, and no longer creating! Ah, that that great debility may ever be far from me! And also in discerning do I feel only my will's procreating and evolving delight....
Friedrich Nietzsche

All signs of superhuman nature appear in man as illness or insanity.

Friedrich Nietzsche
One has to know the size of one's stomach.
Friedrich Nietzsche

Even the bravest only rarely have courage for what they really know.

Friedrich Nietzsche
He who strays from the customary becomes a sacrifice to the extraordinary; he who keeps to the customary becomes its slave. He iscondemned to perish in either case.
Friedrich Nietzsche

One must separate from anything that forces one to repeat No again and again.

Friedrich Nietzsche
More and more it seems to me that the philosopher, being of necessity a man of tomorrow and the day after tomorrow, has always found himself, and had to find himself, in contradiction to his today: his enemy was ever the ideal of today. So far all these extraordinary furtherers of men whom one calls philosophers, though they themselves have rarely felt like friends of wisdom but rather like disagreeable fools and dangerous question marks, have found their task, their hard, unwanted, inescapable task, but eventually also the greatness of their task, in being the bad conscience of their time.
