The earth has become small, and on it hops the last man, who makes everything small. His race can no more be exterminated than the flea can be. The last man lives the longest.

-Friedrich Nietzsche
Friedrich Nietzsche

Everyone wants to be foremost in this future-and yet death and the stillness of death are the only things certain and common to all in this future! How strange that this sole thing that is certain and common to all, exercises almost no influence on men, and that they are the furthest from regarding themselves as the brotherhood of death! It makes me happy to see that men do not want to think at all of the idea of death!

Friedrich Nietzsche
I shall repeat a hundred times; we really ought to free ourselves from the seduction of words!
Friedrich Nietzsche

What, if some day or night a demon were to steal after you into your loneliest loneliness and say to you: 'This life as you now live it and have lived it, you will have to live once more and innumerable times more' ... Would you not throw yourself down and gnash your teeth and curse the demon who spoke thus? Or have you once experienced a tremendous moment when you would have answered him: 'You are a god and never have I heard anything more divine.

Friedrich Nietzsche
Egoism is the very essence of a noble soul.
Friedrich Nietzsche

That little hypocrites and half-crazed people dare to imagine that on their account the laws of nature are constantly broken; such an enhancement of every kind of selfishness to infinity, to impudence, cannot be branded with sufficient contempt. And yet Christianity owes its triumph to this pitiable flattery of personal vanity.

Friedrich Nietzsche
The less men are fettered by tradition, the greater becomes the inward activity of their motives, and greater again in proportion to their outer restlessness.
Friedrich Nietzsche

Many brief follies--that is what you call love. And your marriage puts an end to many brief follies, with a single long stupidity.

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

One has to pay dearly for immortality; one has to die several times while one is still alive. Friedrich Nietzsch

Friedrich Nietzsche
I have given a name to my pain, and call it "dog".
