Friedrich Nietzsche Quotes
Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche (/?ni?t??/; German: [?f?i?d??ç ?v?lh?lm ?ni?t?s??]; 15 October 1844 – 25 August 1900) was a German philosopher, cultural critic, poet, and Latin and Greek scholar whose work has exerted a profound influence on Western philosophy and modern intellectual history. Beginning his career as a classical philologist before turning to philosophy, he became the youngest-ever occupant of the Chair of Classical Philology at the University of Basel in 1869, at age 24. He resigned in 1879 due to health problems that plagued him most of his life, and he completed much of his core writing in the following decade. In 1889, at age 44, he suffered a collapse and a complete loss of his mental faculties. He lived his remaining years in the care of his mother (until her death in 1897) and then his sister Elisabeth Förster-Nietzsche, and died in 1900.

We love life, not because we are used to living but because we are used to loving.
All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.
Hope in reality is the worst of all evils because it prolongs the torments of man.
He who would learn to fly one day must first learn to stand and walk and run and climb and dance; one cannot fly into flying.
On the mountains of truth you can never climb in vain: either you will reach a point higher up today, or you will be training your powers so that you will be able to climb higher tomorrow.
Not necessity, not desire - no, the love of power is the demon of men. Let them have everything - health, food, a place to live, entertainment - they are and remain unhappy and low-spirited: for the demon waits and waits and will be satisfied.
