People buy their necessities in shops and have to pay dearly for them because they have to assist in paying for what is also on sale there but only rarely finds purchasers: the luxury and amusement goods. So it is that luxury continually imposes a tax on the simple people who have to do without it.

-Friedrich Nietzsche
Friedrich Nietzsche

For the purpose of knowledge we must know how to make use of the inward current which draws us towards a thing, and also of the current which after a time draws us away from it.

Friedrich Nietzsche
But the thought is one thing, the deed is another, and another yet is the image of the deed. The wheel of causality does not roll between them.
Friedrich Nietzsche

I still live, I still think: I still have to live, for I still have to think.

Friedrich Nietzsche
The word 'Christianity' is already a misunderstanding - in reality there has been only one Christian, and he died on the Cross.
Friedrich Nietzsche

Lying very still and thinking very little is the most inexpensive medicine for all the sicknesses of the soul, and when administered with good intentions it grows more and more pleasant with each passing hour.

Friedrich Nietzsche
Precisely the least, the softest, lightest, a lizard's rustling, a breath, a flash, a moment - a little makes the way of the best happiness.
Friedrich Nietzsche

Yet tell me, my brothers: if a goal for humanity is still lacking, is there not still lacking--humanity itself?

Friedrich Nietzsche
No price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.
Friedrich Nietzsche

There is more wisdom in your body than in your deepest philosophy. Friedrich Nietzsch

Friedrich Nietzsche
Do whatever you will, but first be such as are able to will.
