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

This crown to crown the laughing man, this rose-wreath crown: I myself have set this crown upon my head, I myself have pronounced my laughter holy.

Friedrich Nietzsche
Out of a brotherly love we occasionally embrace this or that somebody (because we cannot embrace everybody): but we must never letour somebody know it.
Friedrich Nietzsche

Let us guard against saying that there are laws in nature. There are merely necessities: there is no one who commands, no one whoobeys, no one who transgresses. Once you understand that there are no purposes, then you also understand that nothing is accidental: for it is only in a world of purposes that the word "accident" makes sense.

Friedrich Nietzsche

Friedrich Nietzsche

He who humbles himself wants to be exalted.

Friedrich Nietzsche
Without music, life would be an error. The German imagines even God singing songs
Friedrich Nietzsche

Friedrich Nietzsche
Surrounded by the flames of jealousy, the jealous one winds up, like the scorpion, turning the poisoned sting against himself.
