Friedrich Nietzsche(October 15, 1844 – August 25, 1900) was one of Germany’s most influential philosophers, who wrote Thus Spoke Zarathustra, his most significant work.
Here are Friedrich Nietzsche’s top ten most profound quotes:
That which does not kill us makes us stronger.
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.
There are no facts, only interpretations.
There are no beautiful surfaces without a terrible depth.
No one can construct for you the bridge upon which precisely you must cross the stream of life, no one but yourself alone.
Without music, life would be a mistake.
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, and the only way, it does not exist.
And we should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once. And we should call every truth false which was not accompanied by at least one laugh.
Thank you Friedrich Nietzsche!
