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
Friedrich Nietzsche

Few are made for independence, it is the privilege of the strong.

Friedrich Nietzsche
Nobody is more inferior than those who insist on being equal.
Friedrich Nietzsche

Some rule out of a lust for ruling; others, so as not to be ruled:Mto these it is merely the lesser of two evils.

Friedrich Nietzsche
In order to be able thus to misjudge, and thus to grant left-handed veneration to our classics, people must have ceased to know them. This, generally speaking, is precisely what has happened. For, otherwise, one ought to know that there is only one way of honoring them, and that is to continue seeking with the same spirit and with the same courage, and not to weary of the search.
Friedrich Nietzsche

A philosophical mythology lies concealed in language, which breaks out again at every moment, no matter how cautious we may be.

Friedrich Nietzsche
Since men do not really respect anything unless it was established long ago and has developed slowly over time, those who want tokeep on living after their death must take worry not only about their future generations but even more about their past: that is why tyrants of all kinds (including tyrannical artists and politicians) like to do violence to history, so that it will appear as a preparation and stepladder to themselves.
Friedrich Nietzsche

Thus strength is afforded by good and thorough customs, thus is learnt the subjection of the individual, and strenuousness of character becomes a birth gift and afterwards is fostered as a habit.

Friedrich Nietzsche
There was at all events one advantage in the choice of this day to my birth; my birthday throughout the whole of my childhood was a day of public rejoicing.
Friedrich Nietzsche

It is only when we have ceased to be the followers of our followers that we comprehend how meaningless followers are.

Friedrich Nietzsche
The public easily confuses him who fishes in troubled waters with him who draws up water from the depths.
