But this people has deliberately made itself stupid, for nearly a millennium: nowhere have the two great European narcotics, alcohol and Christianity, been abused more dissolutely.
Friedrich Nietzsche

The wittiest authors evoke a barely perceptible smile.

Friedrich Nietzsche
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

In pain there is as much wisdom as in pleasure: like the latter it is one of the best self preservatives of a species.

Friedrich Nietzsche
That the world is not the embodiment of an eternal rationality can be conclusively proved by the fact that the piece of the worldthat we know--I mean our human reason--is not so very rational. And if it is not eternally and completely wise and rational, then the rest of the world will not be either; here the conclusion a minori ad majus, a parte ad totum applies, and does so with decisive force.
Friedrich Nietzsche

Christianity is called the religion of pity.

Friedrich Nietzsche
In Christianity neither morality nor religion come into contact with reality at any point.
Friedrich Nietzsche

Glance into the world just as though time were gone: and everything crooked will become straight to you.

Friedrich Nietzsche
Righteousness exalteth a nation.
