One of my favorite thinkers ever!
NIETZSCHE on Truth:
WE HAVE ART IN ORDER NOT TO DIE OF TRUTH
-Choose between comfort and truth for they are mutually exclusive. If you want to choose the pleasure of growth, prepare yourself for some pain.
-All Truth is simple...is that not doubly a lie?
-Faith is not wanting to know what is true.
-A casual stroll through the lunatic asylum shows that faith does not prove anything.
- The "Kingdom of Heaven" is a condition of the heart- not something that comes "upon the earth" or "after death"
- I can not believe in a god who wants to be praised all the time
- Is man one of God's blunders? Or is God one of man's blunders?
-Love is blind; friendship closes it's eyes
-Whatever is done for love always occurs beyond good and evil
-Hope in reality is the worst of all evils because it prolongs the torments of man
-He who has a Why to live can bear almost any How
- To live is to suffer, to survive is to find some meaning in the suffering
-Fear is the mother of morality
-In individuals, insanity is rare; but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule.
A FEW OF MY FAVORITE QUOTES BY MY HOMIE
-If you gaze for long into the abyss, the abyss gazes also into you
-Perhaps I know best why it is man alone who laughs; he alone suffers so deeply that he had to invent laughter.
-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.
You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, the only way, it does not exist.
For Art to exist, for any sort of aesthetic activity to exist, a certain physiological precondition is indispensable: Intoxication
