Friedrich Nietzsche Quotes.

1. "The misunderstanding of passion and reason, as if the latter were an independent entity and not rather a system of relations between various passions and desires; and as if every passion did not possess its quantum of reason"
- Friedrich Nietzsche, The Will to Power

2. "Beauty is for the artist something outside all orders of rank, because in beauty opposites are tamed; the highest sign of power, namely power over opposites; moreover, without tension: – that violence is no longer needed: that everything follows, obeys, so easily and so pleasantly – that is what delights the artist’s WILL TO POWER."
- Friedrich Nietzsche, The Will to Power

3. "Insight: all evaluation is made from a definite perspective: that of the preservation of the individual, a community, a race, a state, a church, a faith, a culture.--- Because we forget that valuation is always from a perspective, a single individual contains within him a vast confusion of contradictory valuations and consequently of contradictory drives. This is the expression of the diseased condition in man, in contrast to the animals in which all existing instincts answer to quite definite tasks. This contradictory creature has in his nature, however, a great method of acquiring knowledge: he feels many pros and cons, he raises himself to justice---to comprehension beyond esteeming things good and evil. The wisest man would be the one richest in contradictions, who has, as it were, antennae for all types of men---as well as his great moments of grand harmony---a rare accident even in us! A sort of planetary motion---"
- Friedrich Nietzsche, The Will to Power

4. "It is not enough that you understand in what ignorance man and beast live; you must also have and acquire the will to ignorance. You need to grasp that without this kind of ignorance life itself would be impossible, that it is a condition under which alone the living thing can preserve itself and prosper: a great, firm dome of ignorance must encompass you."
- Friedrich Nietzsche, The Will to Power

5. "The worst mutilation of man that can be imagined presented as the "good man"."
- Friedrich Nietzsche, The Will to Power

6. "It is not the victory of science that distinguishes our nineteenth century, but the victory of scientific method over science."

7. "For some time now, our whole European culture has been moving with a tortured tension that is growing from decade to decade, as toward a catastrophe: restlessly, violently, headlong, like a river that wants to reach the end, that no longer reflects, that is afraid to reflect."
- Friedrich Nietzsche, The Will to Power

8. "The domestication (the culture) of man does not go deep--where it does go deep it at once becomes degeneration (type: the Christian). The 'savage' (or, in moral terms, the evil man) is a return to nature--and in a certain sense his recovery, his cure from 'culture'."
- Friedrich Nietzsche, The Will to Power

9. "This is the antinomy: insofar as we believe in morality we pass sentence on existence."
- Friedrich Nietzsche, The Will to Power

10. "How does one become stronger? By deciding slowly; and by holding firmly to the decision once it is made. Everything else follows of itself."
- Friedrich Nietzsche, The Will to Power
