The belief in authority is the source of conscience; which is therefore not the voice of God in the heart of man, but the voice of some men in man.

-Friedrich Nietzsche

Modern marriage has lost its meaning--consequently it is being abolished.

Friedrich Nietzsche
O sancta simplicitas! What strange simplification and falsification mankind lives on! One can never cease to marvel once one has acquired eyes for this marvel! How we have made everything around us bright and free and easy and simple! How we have known how to bestow on our senses a passport to everything superficial, on our thoughts a divine desire for wanton gambling and false conclusions! - how we have from the very beginning understood how to retain our ignorance so as to enjoy an almost inconceivable freedom, frivolity, impetuosity, bravery, cheerfulness of life, so as to enjoy life!
Friedrich Nietzsche

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

Friedrich Nietzsche
Go through the towns and ask yourselves whether these people should reproduce! Let them go to their whores!
Friedrich Nietzsche

It is not when truth is dirty, but when it is shallow, that the lover of knowledge is reluctant to step into its waters.

Friedrich Nietzsche
Both classically- and romantically-minded spirits-inasmuch as these two species always exist-occupy themselves with a vision of the future: but the former do so out of a strength of their age, the latter out of its weakness.
Friedrich Nietzsche

Pity is the most agreeable feeling among those who have little pride and no prospects of great conquests.

Friedrich Nietzsche
From passions grow opinions; intellectual laziness lets these harden into convictions.
Friedrich Nietzsche

Sing me a new song; the world is transfigured; all the Heavens are rejoicing. Friedrich Nietzsch

Friedrich Nietzsche
The life of the enemy . Whoever lives for the sake of combating an enemy has an interest in the enemy's staying alive.
