Whoever regards human beings as a herd and flees them as swiftly as he can will no doubt be overtaken by them and impaled on theirhorns.

Few are made for independence, it is the privilege of the strong.

Friedrich Nietzsche
[Heraclitus speaks as if] in entrancement ... but [also] truthfully.
Friedrich Nietzsche

What good is a book that does not even transport us beyond all books?

Friedrich Nietzsche
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

And like a wind shall I one day blow amongst them and with my spirit take away their soul's breath: thus my future wills it.

Friedrich Nietzsche
I want to know whether you are a person devoted to creating or to exchanging in some respect or other: as a creator you belong tothe free, as an exchanger you are their slave and instrument.
Friedrich Nietzsche

Our sense of the tragic waxes and wanes with our sensuality.

Friedrich Nietzsche
We, however, want to become those we are--human beings who are new, unique, incomparable, who give themselves laws, who create themselves. To that end we must become the best learners and discoverers of everything that is lawful and necessary in the world: we must become physicists in order to be able to be creators in this sense--while hitherto all valuations and ideals have been based on ignorance of physics or were constructed so as to contradict it. Therefore: long live physics! And even more so that which compels us to turn to physics--our honesty!
Friedrich Nietzsche

I love him who seeks to create over and beyond himself and thus perishes.

Friedrich Nietzsche
It is no doubt possible to fly--but first you must know how to dance like an angel.
