Nietzsche

You must have chaos within you to give birth to a dancing star.

There is always some madness in love. But there is also always some reason in madness.

There is more wisdom in your body than in your deepest philosophy.

That which does not kill us makes us stronger.

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

Supposing that Truth is a woman — well, now, is there not some foundation for suspecting that all philosophers, insofar as they were dogmatists, have not known how to handle women?

Sex: only to the withered a sweet poison; to the lion-willed, however, the great cordial, and the reverently saved wine of wines.

Faith: not wanting to know what the truth is.

I would believe only in a God that knows how to dance.

Man is a rope stretched between the animal and the Superman--a rope over an abyss.

I love the great despisers, because they are the great adorers, and arrows of longing for the other shore.

Behold, I am a herald of the lightning, and a heavy drop out of the cloud.

Behold, I teach you the Superman: He is this lightning, he is this madness!

"The most spiritual men, as the strongest, find their happiness where others would find their destruction: in the labyrinth, in hardness against themselves and others, in experiments. Their joy is self-conquest: asceticism becomes in them nature, need, and instinct. Difficult tasks are a privilege to them; to play with burdens that crush others, a recreation. Knowledge-a form of asceticism. They are the most venerable kind of man: that does not preclude their being the most cheerful and the kindliest. ”
― Friedrich Nietzsche, The Anti-Christ

Just did a sermon on "Three Metamorphoses" out of Thus Spoke Zarathustra.  Pretty powerful symbolism in that one.

" life is made of extremely rare moments of great intensity and of countless intervals. The majority of men, however, not knowing the magical moments, it ends with only live intermissions ".

"That hidden and imperious thing for which it takes

us a long time to find a name, until at last it reveals

itself as our Task in Life, that tyrant within us takes

a terrible revenge for each attempt we make to avoid

or escape from it, for each premature decision , for 

each identification with something that is none of our

business, for otherwise respectable activities if they

divert us from our main concern- yes even for each

virtue which would keep us from the stern call of our

personal duty. Disease is the response whenever we

doubt our vocation, whenever we begin to make things

easier for ourselves. How strange and, at the same time

frightening it is that we obtain more relief the more we

atone! If we would regain our health, we have no choice:

we must shoulder a heaver burden than we shouldered

before."

Friedrich Nietzsche

“Courageous, untroubled, mocking and violent-that is what Wisdom wants us to be. Wisdom is a woman, and loves only a warrior.”

Today we count 50 members, thanks for the participation.

It is a nice day to ask ourself a question...

"I teach you the overman. Man is something that shall be overcome. What have you done to overcome him?"

You are welcome to share your answer if you like.

I also thank you for the invite. Nietzsche, truly is a road less traveled.
