  • Truths are illlusions which we have forgotten are illusions.

  • As soon as we climb higher than those who had at one time admired us, we appear to them as though we have sunken and fallen down:for, in any event, they had at one time supposed that they were with us (even if it were through us) on the heights.

  • There would be no sunshine in society if the born flatterers, I mean the so-called amiable people, did not bring it in with them.

  • Books that teach us to dance: There are writers who, by portraying the impossible as possible, and by speaking of morality and genius as if both were high-spirited freedom, as if man were rising up on tiptoe and simply had to dance out of inner pleasure.

    Men  
  • We have to be careful that in throwing out the devil, we don't throw out the best part of ourselves.

  • I despise mystics, they fancy themselves so deep, when they aren't even superficial.

  • I condemn Christianity; I bring against the Christian Church the most terrible of all accusations that an accuser has ever had in his mouth. It is, to me, the greatest of all imaginable corruptions; it seeks to work the ultimate corruption, the worse possible corruption. The Christian Church has left nothing untouched by its depravity; it has turned every value into worthlessness, and every truth into a lie, and every integrity into baseness of soul.

    Friedrich Nietzsche “Delphi Complete Works of Friedrich Nietzsche (Illustrated): Friedrich Nietzsche”, Delphi Classics
  • Man is more sensitive to the contempt that others feel towards him than to the contempt that he feels towards himself.

  • 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.

    Friedrich Nietzsche “Delphi Complete Works of Friedrich Nietzsche (Illustrated): Friedrich Nietzsche”, Delphi Classics
  • The worst readers are those who behave like plundering troops: they take away a few things they can use, dirty and confound the remainder, and revile the whole.

    "Human, All Too Human". Book by Friedrich Nietzsche, II.137, 1878.
  • Virtues are dangerous as vices insofar as they are allowed to rule over one as authorities and not as qualities one develops oneself.

  • Thoughts are the shadows of our feelings - always darker, emptier and simpler.

    Love  
    Friedrich Nietzsche (2010). “The Gay Science: With a Prelude in Rhymes and an Appendix of Songs”, p.203, Vintage
  • God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him. How shall we comfort ourselves, the murderers of all murderers? What was holiest and mightiest of all that the world has yet owned has bled to death under our knives: who will wipe this blood off us? What water is there for us to clean ourselves? What festivals of atonement, what sacred games shall we have to invent? Is not the greatness of this deed too great for us? Must we ourselves not become gods simply to appear worthy of it?

    Friedrich Nietzsche (2010). “The Gay Science: With a Prelude in Rhymes and an Appendix of Songs”, p.181, Vintage
  • One should not be deceived: great spirits are skeptics ... Strength, FREEDOM which is born of the strength and overstrength of the spirit, proves itself by skepticism.

    Men  
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1977). “The Portable Nietzsche”, p.385, Penguin
  • Christianity is religion for the executioner.

    Friedrich Nietzsche (2016). “Twilight of the Idols”, p.44, Friedrich Nietzsche

  • Metaphysical world.- It is true, there could be a metaphysical world; the absolute possibility of it is hardly to be disputed. We behold all things through the human head and cannot cut off this head; while the question nonetheless remains what of the world would still be there if one had cut it off.

    Friedrich Nietzsche, R. J. Hollingdale (1996). “Nietzsche: Human, All Too Human: A Book for Free Spirits”, p.15, Cambridge University Press
  • The best belongs to me and mine; and if we are not given it, we take it: the best food, the purest sky, the most robust thoughts, the fairest women!

  • The happiness of man is: I will. The happiness of woman is: he wills.

    Men  
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1977). “The Portable Nietzsche”, p.114, Penguin
  • One does not kill by anger but by laughter.

    Doe

  • Socrates ... is the first philosopher of life [Lebensphilosoph], ... Thinking serves life, while among all previous philosophers life had served thought and knowledge. ... Thus Socratic philosophy is absolutely practical: it is hostile to all knowledge unconnected to ethical implications.

  • Over immense periods of time the intellect produced nothing but errors. A few of these proved to be useful and helped to preserve the species: those who hit upon or inherited these had better luck in their struggle for themselves and their progeny. Such erroneous articles of faith... include the following: that there are things, substances, bodies; that a thing is what it appears to be; that our will is free; that what is good for me is also good in itself.

    Friedrich Nietzsche (2010). “The Gay Science: With a Prelude in Rhymes and an Appendix of Songs”, p.169, Vintage
  • God is dead, God remains dead, and we have killed him.
