I have always liked this perspective of life…control your own destiny…do not be like sheep……never say “what are we going to do?” rather say, “What am i I going to do?” Reply Camila May 28, 2010 at 00:30 You know, it’s very poetic to think that we are individuals who exist at the margin of others, but the truth is, originality doesn’t exist. We are, truly, compounds of experiences and moments, and other people. We are unique, but not original, and so, we can’t actually OWN ourselves.. we can solely own our choices. Reply frederik May 28, 2010 at 13:25 from which Nietzsche book is this? Reply admin May 28, 2010 at 13:41 I dont have a clue to be honest Reply Tom May 28, 2010 at 15:11 Sometimes i enjoy running with the pack. It’s not that I blinding follow the pack, but rather i CHOOSE to go the same direction they are going Reply Jim May 29, 2010 at 03:00 You all do know that Neitzsche was the main influence for Hitler, right? Reply mike May 30, 2010 at 18:15 Absolutely, sometimes is hard going against the road, but one day one will receive the rewards Reply meMyselfEye June 10, 2010 at 21:18 @Jim: Not by choice, it was his sister who gave it to Hitler. Similarly, the Holy Bible has been used in ways it wasn’t intended, does make it less important as a work of literature? “Ultimately, no one can extract from things, books included, more than one already knows. What one has no access to through experience one has no ear for.” – Nietzsche Reply Name (required) June 11, 2010 at 02:30 @meMyselfEye Well said. Reply Peace of Eight June 16, 2010 at 19:31 You do realize that ol’ Fred was certifiably insane, don’t you? Reply ben July 1, 2010 at 06:50 You do realize if you continue to judge messages by the messenger you will continue to appear the fool? Reply Alex September 26, 2010 at 02:19 What a tragic, lonely, damaged man. We are wired to love and to share, and to allow oursleves to be “influenced” ie affected.A lack of affect is a lack of emotion, and is a sign of severe pathology. The number of boys I met at college who were obsessed with Neitzche, and kept it up past 2nd year is one.He’s dead now.What a fucking waste. Reply Well Informed September 28, 2010 at 08:09 @Piece of 8 You do realize that this happened to him after all of his major philosophical contributions, don’t you? As a matter of fact, it was in his last year of life. @Alex You missed the whole point. Reply Pierre September 30, 2010 at 17:32 Although this is an awesome quote, I am saddened by the amount of people who have either completely misinterpreted, misunderstood, or missed the point of Nietzsche’s philosophy. @Alex, have you ever heard the great, heartwarming quote “Without music, life would be a mistake.”? Author? Nietzsche. If everyone who was commenting here saying Nietzsche was an influence on Hitler or he was insane etc. ever read just a bit more Nietzsche than what you found interspersed here and there on the Internet, you would know that Nietzsche was not an anti-emotional racist homophobic white supremacist Nazi but quite on the contrary, a realistic, emotional, and powerful thinker. People really need to read past the tips of their noses. Reply Megan M October 7, 2010 at 08:23 I am almost positive that this is from “the genealogy of morals” Reply Don L October 28, 2010 at 05:46 I like this quote and it’s weird that he’s popping up everywhere I just found out I shared a birthday with him too. Reply Raul November 12, 2010 at 06:24 This was Kipling’s quote, not Nietzsche’s. Reply fajas colombianas January 4, 2011 at 20:07 sometimes is hard going against the road, but at sometimes aswell, its fruit is sweet. Reply Sach May 22, 2011 at 12:02 Nicely said 🙂 Reply CosmicQuotes December 22, 2011 at 00:44 Great post. Perhaps my best quote by Friedrich Nietzsche is “one must have chaos within oneself, to give birth to a dancing star” Reply Sam Thomas January 26, 2018 at 15:28 Well done! thank you for sharing, loved it! I’m going to share! Especially with the young people in my life. Leave a Reply Cancel reply This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Learn how your comment data is processed.
