    Post Random Nietzsche Quotes

    If anyone would like to share any quotes that they may have of Nietzeche's, please post them in this thread. Thank you.

    316. Milieu and arrogance — One unlearns arrogance when he knows he is always among men of merit; solitude breeds presumption. Young people are arrogant because they go about with their own kind, each of whom is nothing, but wishes to be important. ("Human, All Too Human: Man in Society")
    328. Humanity — The humanity of famous intellectuals consists in graciously losing the argument when dealing with the nonfamous. ("Human, All Too Human: Man In Society")
    358. Demanding pity as a sign of arrogance — There are people, who, when they become angry and offend others, demand first that nothing be held against them, and second, that they be pitied because they are prey to such violent attacks. Human arrogance can go that far. ("Human, All Too Human: Man in Society")

    One must test oneself to see whether one is destined for independence and command; and one must do so at the proper time. One should not avoid one's tests, although they are perhaps the most dangerous game one could play and are in the end tests which are taken before ourselves and before no other judge. ('Beyong Good and Evil')

    “As a waterfall becomes slower and more floating as it plunges, so the great man of action will act with greater calm than could be expect from his violent desire before the deed”
    - § 488, “Human, All too Human”, Friedrich Nietzsche.
    All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream at night, in the dusky recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity. But the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams, with open eyes, to make it possible.

    Here's another I like:

    280
    'Bad! Bad! What? Is he not going - backwards?' - Yes! But you ill understand him if you complain about it. He goes backwards as everyone goes backwards who wants to take a big jump.- ('Beyond Good and Evil')

    Exquisitely inspiring stuff!

    To me Nietzsche is the ultimate psychologist as much as anything else - I understand Freud kept the complete works of N in his study. When I need psychological solace I cut out the middleman (Freud), and his cronies, and go straight to the source. Somehow he understands everything! I suppose it largely has to do with the many tragedies he suffered throught his life and what he learned as he overcome them (as much as he possibly could).

    Here's my favorite.

    204. Darkness and excessive brightness juxtaposed — Writers who do not know how to express their thoughts in general, will in particular prefer to select the strongest, most exaggerated terms and superlatives: this produces an effect as of torchlights along confusing forest paths. ("Human, All Too Human: From the Soul of Artists and Writers")

    Whoever does not know how to put his thoughts on ice should not engage in the heat of argument.
    - § 315, “Human, All too Human”, Friedrich Nietzsche.
    The disciple of the martyr suffers more than the martyr
    - § 582, "Human, All too Human", Friedrich Nietzsche.
    Shared joy, not compassion, makes a friend
    - § 499, "Human, All too Human", Friedrich Nietzsche.
    One is punished most for one's virtues
    - § 132, "Human, All too Human", Friedrich Nietzsche.
    With hard men intimacy is a thing of shame - and something precious
    - § 167, "Human, All too Human", Friedrich Nietzsche
    Love brings to light the exalted and concealed qualities of a lover - what is rare and exceptional in him: to that extent it can easily decieve as to what is normal in him
    - § 163, "Human, All too Human", Friedrich Nietzsche
    It is inhuman to bless where one is cursed
    - § 181, "Human, All too Human", Friedrich Nietzsche

    THE HAMMER SPEAKS
    "Why so hard?" the kitchen coal once said to the diamond. "After all, are we not close kin?'
    Why so soft? O, my brothers, thus I ask you: are you not after all my brothers?
    Why so soft, so pliant and yielding? Why is there so much denial, self-denial, in your hearts? So little destiny in your eyes?
    And if you do not want to be destinies and inexorable ones, how can you one day triumph with me?
    And if your hardness does not wish to flash and cut and cut through, how can you one day create with me?
    For all creators are hard. And it must seem blessedness to you to impress your hand on millennia as on bronze-harder than bronze, nobler than bronze. Only the noblest is altogether hard.
    This new tablet, O my bothers, I place over you: become hard!
    Zarathustra

    For us, the falsity of a judgment is no objection to that judgment—that's where our new way of speaking sounds perhaps most strange. The question is the extent to which it makes demands on life, sustains life, maintains the species—perhaps even creates species. And we are even ready to assert that the falsest judgments (to which a priori synthetic judgments belong) are the most indispensable to us, that without our allowing logical fictions to count, without a way of measuring reality against the purely invented world of the unconditional and self-identical, without a constant falsification of the world through numbers, human beings could not live—that if we managed to give up false judgments, it would amount to a renunciation of life, a denial of life. To concede the fictional nature of the conditions of life means, of course, taking a dangerous stand against the customary feelings about value. A new philosophy which dared to do that would thus stand alone, beyond good and evil.
    - From Chapter 1 Of Beyond Good And Evil

    Much of Nietzsche is like the Vaisheshika line of thought.

    And I have liked that quote, OP, Thanks.
