Food for Thought

Selected quotes from Friedrich Nietzsche:

Admiration for a quality or an art can be so strong that it deters us from striving to possess it.

All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.

Faith: not wanting to know what is true.

He who has a why to live can bear almost any how. 

In every real man a child is hidden that wants to play. 

One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star. 

The essence of all beautiful art, all great art, is gratitude. 

This is the hardest of all: to close the open hand out of love, and keep modest as a giver. 

What do you regard as most humane? To spare someone shame. 

When you look into an abyss, the abyss also looks into you. 

Words are but symbols for the relations of things to one another and to us; nowhere do they touch upon absolute truth. 

You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.
