Forgetting: that is a divine capacity. And whoever aspires to the heights and wants to fly must cast off much that is heavy and make himself light--I call it a divine capacity for lightness.

-Friedrich Nietzsche
Friedrich Nietzsche

When one has a great deal to put into it a day has a hundred pockets.

Friedrich Nietzsche
How much reverence has a noble man for his enemies!--and such reverence is a bridge to love.--For he desires his enemy for himself, as his mark of distinction; he can endure no other enemy than one in whom there is nothing to despise and very much to honor! In contrast to this, picture "the enemy" as the man of ressentiment conceives him--and here precisely is his deed, his creation: he has conceived "the evil enemy," "the Evil One," and this in fact is his basic concept, from which he then evolves, as an afterthought and pendant, a "good one"--himself!
Friedrich Nietzsche

Mothers easily become jealous of their sons' friends when they are particularly successful. As a rule a mother loves herself in her son more than she does the son himself.

Friedrich Nietzsche
Immortal is the moment when I engendered the recurrence. For the sake of this moment I bear the recurrence.
Friedrich Nietzsche

God is a too palpably clumsy answer; an answer which shows a lack of delicacy towards us thinkers-fundamentally, even a crude prohibition to us: you shall not think!

Friedrich Nietzsche
Madness is the exception in individuals but the rule in groups.
Friedrich Nietzsche

Marriages that made out of love (so-called "love-matches") have error as their father and misery (necessity) as their mother.

Friedrich Nietzsche
When I contemplated purpose I also contemplated chance and foolishness.
Friedrich Nietzsche

While every noble morality develops from a triumphant affirmation of itself, slave morality from the outset says No to what is "outside," what is "different," what is "not itself"; and this No is its creative deed.

Friedrich Nietzsche
It has therewith come to be recognized that the history of moral valuations is at the same time the history of an error, the error of responsibility, which is based upon the error of the freedom of will.
