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

-Friedrich Nietzsche
Friedrich Nietzsche

We evaluate the services that anyone renders to us according to the value he puts on them, not according to the value they have for us.

Friedrich Nietzsche
However unchristian it may seem, I do not even bear any ill feeling towards myself.
Friedrich Nietzsche

Those who know that they are profound strive for clarity. Those who would like to seem profound to the crowd strive for obscurity. For the crowd believes that if it cannot see to the bottom of something it must be profound. It is so timid and dislikes going into the water.

Friedrich Nietzsche
Beware in the presence of cats: they never give, they do not even retaliate--they only reply, and purr in doing so.
Friedrich Nietzsche

Do not be deceived! The busiest people harbor the greatest weariness, their restlessness is weakness--they no longer have the capacity for waiting and idleness.

Friedrich Nietzsche
We are responsible to ourselves for our own existence; consequently we want to be the true helmsman of this existence and refuse to allow our existence to resemble a mindless act of chance.
Friedrich Nietzsche

Of what is great one must either be silent or speak with greatness. With greatness--that means cynically and with innocence.

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

The more a person indulges himself the less others are willing to indulge him.

Friedrich Nietzsche
When we cannot stand certain people, we try to have suspicions about them.
