"I obviously do everything to be "hard to understand" myself"
"One loves ultimately one's desires, not the thing desired."
"The text has disappeared under the interpretation."
"Objection, evasion, joyous distrust, and love of irony are signs of health; everything absolute belongs to pathology."
"One must shed the bad taste of wanting to agree with many. "Good" is no longer good when one's neighbor mouths it. And how should there be a "common good"! The term contradicts itself: whatever can be common always has little value. In the end it must be as it is and always has been: great things remain for the great, abysses for the profound, nuances and shudders for the refined, and, in brief, all that is rare for the rare."
"Madness is something rare in individuals — but in groups, parties, peoples, and ages, it is the rule."
― Friedrich Nietzsche, Beyond Good and Evil
