    Zarathustra Bits No#1

    I sat among them disguised, ready to misunderstand myself so that I might endure them, and glad to tell myself: 'You fool, you do not know men!' Zarathustra, The Home-Coming This is my first manly prudence: I let myself be deceived so as not to be on guard against deceivers. Z...

    Who Wouldn't It?

    I find it fascinating how Nietzsche completely turns our beliefs upside down. While most might not necessarily agree with Nietzsche when he asserts that most philosopher's views are motivated by their desires rather than humankind in general. Nietzsche's assertion about...

    Übermensch Is He

    God is dead, we are the lead, that is the bullet to his head. Would society self-destruct without a God to instruct? No, said Nietzsche new values, we create this world is not to hate, and life has value there is no need for an afterlife in my view. With only one life and this...

    Think Differently

    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 ::Nietzche

    The Gay Science: My Life With Nietzsche

    He is in my opinion the greatest philosopher of all time. He has changed my thought process. I love the fact that he attacked Christianity as one of the pollutants of the mind. Nietzsche also said the famous words, "God is dead." I myself do not believe in God or anything...

    I Had a Socrates Moment.

    I am reading Nietzsche's Twilight of Idols, it's fantastic, some of it is over my head but the parts I understand are great. He was critisizing the church and he said that an inability to take the passions in moderation, and instead completly denying them...

    Preaching Nietzsche

    Some of my more fond school memories occurred just after I discovered Nietzsche. I was about 13 when I first learned of him and became instantly obsessed. I would spend all my free time, including lunch breaks at school, reading Nietzsche to anyone who would listen. There was a...

    Ecce Homo

    Finally - this is what is most terrible of all - the concept of the good man signifies that one sides with all that is weak, sick, failure, suffering of itself - all that ought to persish : the principle of selection is crossed - an ideal is fabricated from the contradiction...

    Never Forget To Dance.. Never Forget To Laugh.

    And we should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once. And we should call every truth false which was not accompanied by at least one laugh ::Nietzsche

    A Favorite College Course.

    I like philosophy, and took a semester course on Nietzsche. He could be frustrating to figure out in spots, but showed how to dismantle other peoples' ideas. Unfortunately, his ideas are commonly misunderstood. His works are worth reading.

    And on a good day I can psell

    not only his name but also the words "untermensch" and "Zarathustra". However I'm not sure that the way to become a super man is to take everything Freddy says seriously, nor to spend too much time reading him: _ A Fish Called Wanda_ shows where that can lead, and it's not only...

    Greetings, people! First of all,

    I’ll ask you to be patient with my English, for I'm from Brazil and it's not my native language. I've been reading Nietzsche for some years. It's a slow reading, "drop by drop", and, along with life experiences, a interpretation adventure. I also like Hermann Hesse, who I...

    His Writings Gave Me The Strength To See The World As It Really Is

    Friedrich Nietzsche is my very favorite philosopher. When i was 16 years old my mind was in turmoil. I had just dropped out of high school and was trying to figure out how the world worked, why the world was as messed up as it was, how i could cope and function as a human being...

    "The wanderer. He who has come only in part to

    a freedom of reason cannot feel on earth otherwise than as a wanderer-though not as a traveler towards a final goal, for this does not exist. But he does want to observe, and keep his eyes open for everything that actually occurs in the world; therefore he must not attach his...

    Nietzsche- A Man Of My Heart

    I read Beyond Good & Evil, it was like coming home. Nietzsche didn't just say what I had always known, he expanded upon it. I felt as if he was speaking directly to my soul. He made me detest philosophers I've never read- Wagner and Kant. He made me question my morals, my very...

    Zarathustra - Friedrich Nietzsche

    He left his home and the lake of his home and went into the mountains. Here he endued his spirit and solitude, and for ten years did not tire of it. But at last a change came over his heart, and one morning he rose with the dawn, stepped before the sun, and spoke to it thus...
