On that note, a quote.



Quote of the Day:

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the things that you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

- Mark Twain.

Quote of the day

"I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do."
- Robert A. Heinlein

Quote of the Day

The difference between me and a madman is the madman thinks that he is sane. I know that I am mad.

Here, have sum delicious Nietzsche quotes.

The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who think differently.

Once upon a time, in some out of the way corner of that universe which is dispersed into numberless twinkling solar systems, there was a star upon which clever beasts invented knowing.

The mother of excess is not joy but joylessness.

The Christian resolution to find the world ugly and bad has made the world ugly and bad.

I tell you: one must have chaos within oneself, to give birth to a dancing star.

There is always some madness in love. But there is also always some reason in madness.

It is true: we love life not because we are used to living, but because we are used to loving.

But thus I counsel you, my friends: Mistrust all in whom the impulse to punish is powerful! They are people of a low sort and stock; the hangman and the bloodhound look out of their faces. Mistrust all who talk much of their justice! Verily, their souls lack more than honey. And when they call themselves the good and the just, do not forget that they would be Pharisees, if only they had power.

What is it: is man only a blunder of God, or God only a blunder of man?

What does not destroy me, makes me stronger.

"Faith" means not wanting to know what is true.


I know my fate. One day my name will be associated with the memory of something tremendous — a crisis without equal on earth, the most profound collision of conscience, a decision that was conjured up against everything that had been believed, demanded, hallowed so far. I am no man, I am dynamite.

Ah, women. They make the highs higher and the lows more frequent.

For out of fear and need each religion is born, creeping into existence on the byways of reason.

I cannot believe in a God who wants to be praised all the time.

In heaven all the interesting people are missing.

Without music, life would be a mistake.

We have art in order not to die of the truth.

http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Friedrich_Nietzsche

"The degree of introspection achieved by Nietzsche had never been achieved by anyone, nor is it ever likely to be achieved again." (Variant: Freud several times said of Nietzsche that he had a more penetrating knowledge of himself than any other man who ever lived or was likely to live.)
- Sigmund Freud on Neitzsche.
