In the knowledge of truth, what really matters is the possession of it, not the impulse under which it was sought.

-Friedrich Nietzsche
Friedrich Nietzsche

We operate with nothing but things which do not exist, with lines, planes, bodies, atoms, divisible time, divisible space - how should explanation even be possible when we first make everything into an image, into our own image!

Friedrich Nietzsche
What is originality? To see something that is as yet without a name, that is as yet impossible to designate, even though it staresus in the face. The way it usually is with people, it is a thing's name that makes it perceptible to them in the first place.--For the most part, the original ones have also been the name-givers.
Friedrich Nietzsche

Friedrich Nietzsche
For all things are baptized at the font of eternity, and beyond good and evil; good and evil themselves, however, are but intervening shadows and damp afflictions and passing clouds.
Friedrich Nietzsche

The golden fleece of self-sufficiency guards against cudgel- blows but not against pin-pricks.

Friedrich Nietzsche
The pure soul is a pure lie.
Friedrich Nietzsche

Many die too late, and some die too early. Yet strangers soundeth the precept: "Die at the right time!"

Friedrich Nietzsche
One begins to mistrust very clever people when they become embarrassed.
