Quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche

Friedrich Nietzsche, born Oct. 15, 1844, Röcken, Saxony, Prussia, died Aug. 25, 1900, Weimar, Thuringian States. German philosopher who reasoned that Christianity's emphasis on the afterlife makes its believers less able to cope with earthly life. He argued that the ideal human, the Übermensch, would be able to channel passions creatively instead of suppressing them. His written works include Beyond Good and Evil (1886) and Thus Spake Zarathustra (1883-1892).

  • The most dangerous follower is he whose defection would destroy the whole party: that is to say, the best follower.
  • Wherever there are walls I shall inscribe this eternal accusation against Christianity upon them- I can write in letters which make even the blind see . . . I call Christianity the one great curse, the one great intrinsic depravity, the one great instinct for revenge for which no expedient is sufficiently poisonous, secret, subterranean, petty- I call it the one immortal blemish of mankind.
  • Against boredom the gods themselves fight in vain.
  • The desire to create continually is vulgar and betrays jealousy, envy, ambition. If one is something one really does not need to make anything- and one nonetheless does very much. There exists above the productive man a yet higher species.
  • In the mountains the shortest route is from peak to peak, but for that you must have long legs. Aphorisms should be peaks: and those to whom they are spoken should be big and tall of stature.
  • In the beautiful, man sets himself up as the standard of perfection; in select cases he worships himself in it. . . . Man believes that the world itself is filled with beauty- he forgets that it is he who has created it. He alone has bestowed beauty upon the world- alas! only a very human, an all too human, beauty.
