He who fights too long against dragons becomes a dragon himself; and if you gaze too long into the abyss, the abyss will gaze into you.

-Friedrich Nietzsche
Friedrich Nietzsche

Our destiny exercises its influence over us even when, as yet, we have not learned its nature: it is our future that lays down the law of our today

Friedrich Nietzsche
Annoyance is a physical malady that is in no way cured just because the annoying situation that causes it is eliminated.
Friedrich Nietzsche

One can lie with the mouth, but with the accompanying grimace one nevertheless tells the truth.

Friedrich Nietzsche
The snake which cannot cast its skin has to die.
Friedrich Nietzsche

We have no organ at all for knowledge, for truth: we know (or believe or imagine) precisely as much as may be useful in the interest of the human herd, the species: and even what is here called usefulness is in the end only a belief, something imagined and perhaps precisely that most fatal piece of stupidity by which we shall one day perish.

Friedrich Nietzsche
The more you let yourself go, the less others let you go.
Friedrich Nietzsche

To call a thing good not a day longer than it appears to us good, and above all not a day earlier - that is the only way to keep joy pure.

Friedrich Nietzsche
It is a prejudice to think that morality is more favourable to the development of reason than immorality.
Friedrich Nietzsche

The usual false conclusions of mankind are these: a thing exists, therefore it has a right to exist.

Friedrich Nietzsche
Many things about man are not very godly: whenever a person excretes feces, how can he be a god then? But it is even worse regarding the other feces we call sin: man still surely wants to retain this, and not excrete it. Now however, I must believe it: a person can be God and still excrete feces. Thus I teach you, excrete your feces and become gods.
