Children from humble families must be taught how to command just as other children must be taught how to obey.

-Friedrich Nietzsche
Friedrich Nietzsche

A good writer possesses not only his own spirit but also the spirit of his friends.

Friedrich Nietzsche
One can also be undignified and flattering toward a virtue.
Friedrich Nietzsche

Each word of Heraclitus expresses the pride and the majesty of truth, but of truth grasped in intuitions rather than attained by the rope ladder of logic.

Friedrich Nietzsche
Spiritual strength and passion, when accompanied by bad manners, only provoke loathing.
Friedrich Nietzsche

Beggars should be entirely abolished! Truly, it is annoying to give to them and annoying not to give to them.

Friedrich Nietzsche
Free will appears unfettered, deliberate; it is boundlessly free, wandering, the spirit. But fate is a necessity; unless we believe that world history is a dream-error, the unspeakable sorrows of mankind fantasies, and that we ourselves are but the toys of our fantasies. Fate is the boundless force of opposition against free will. Free will without fate is just as unthinkable as spirit without reality, good without evil. Only antithesis creates the quality.
Friedrich Nietzsche

. . . an absurd problem came to the surface: 'How COULD God permit that (crucifixion of Jesus Christ)!' . . . the deranged reason of the little community found quite a frightfully absurd answer: God gave his Son for forgiveness, as a SACRIFICE . . . The SACRIFICE FOR GUILT, and just in its most repugnant and barbarous form - the sacrifice of the innocent for the sins of the guilty! What horrifying heathenism!

Friedrich Nietzsche
Even cohabitation has been corrupted - by marriage.
Friedrich Nietzsche

One is most dishonest to one's god: he is not allowed to sin.

Friedrich Nietzsche
One never perishes through anybody but oneself.
