Favorite Friedrich Quotes

1. "Nuoren ihmisen on murrosiässä ensin hylättävä kaikki, mikä hänelle siihen asti on ollut rakasta, jotta hän voi rakentaa uudet arvot. Samoin Friedrich Nietzsche, joka ei koskaan ollut kokenut puberteetin kapinaa ja joka 12 vuotiaana oli kirjoittanut sovinnaisia ja pikkuvanhoja merkintöjä päiväkirjaansa, ryhtyy nyt 25 vuotiaana hyökkäämään hänelle aiemmin arvokasta kulttuuria vastaan, alkaa pilkata sitä, vääristellä sitä absurditeettiin asti. Eikä hän tee sitä aikuistumassa olevan nuoren ihmisen keinoin vaan filologin ja filosofian professorin pitkälle kehittyneen älyn asein.On aivan selvää, että tällä kielellä on voimaa ja että se tekee vaikutuksen."
Author: Alice Miller

"First of all, they came to take the gypsiesand I was happy because they pilfered.Then they came to take the Jews and I said nothing, because they were unpleasant to me.Then they came to take homosexuals,and I was relieved, because they were annoying me.Then they came to take the Communists,and I said nothing because I was not a Communist.One day they came to take me,and there was nobody left to protest.Bertold Brecht, inspired by Emil Gustav Friedrich Martin Niemöller"

4. "[Nietzsche thinks artists undersexed]:"Their vampire, their talent, grudges them as a rule that squandering of force which one calls passion.

Author: Camille Paglia
5. "Friedrich Nietzsche, who famously gave us the ‘God is dead' phrase was interested in the sources of morality. He warned that the emergence of something (whether an organ, a legal institution, or a religious ritual) is never to be confused with its acquired purpose: ‘Anything in existence, having somehow come about, is continually interpreted anew, requisitioned anew, transformed and redirected to a new purpose.' This is a liberating thought, which teaches us to never hold the history of something against its possible applications. Even if computers started out as calculators, that doesn't prevent us from playing games on them. (47) (quoting Nietzsche, the Genealogy of Morals)"
Author: Frans De Waal

8. "Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche (October 15, 1844 – August 25, 1900) was a German philosopher. His writing included critiques of religion, morality, contemporary culture, philosophy, and science, using a distinctive style and displaying a fondness for aphorism. Nietzsche's influence remains substantial within and beyond philosophy, notably in existentialism and postmodernism. Nietzsche began his career as a philologist before turning to philosophy. At the age of 24 he became Professor of Classical Philology at the University of Basel, but resigned in 1879 due to health problems, which would plague him for most of his life. In 1889 he exhibited symptoms of a serious mental illness, living out his remaining years in the care of his mother and sister until his death in 1900."
Author: Friedrich Nietzsche

Evidently, Gauss was a Deist with a good deal of skepticism concerning religion."
Author: Gerhard Falk

Author: Herbert Simon
11. "Zaman zaman, var olan en yalniz adam oldugumu düsünüyorum. Dediginiz gibi bunun, insanlarin varligi ya da yokluguyla iligisi yok, üstelik yalnizligimi elimden aldiklari halde gerçekten benimle olmayanlardan da nefret ederim.""Ne demek istiyorsunuz Friedrich? Sizinle nasil olmazlar?""Benim için aziz olan seylere deger vermeyerek!

13. "Zar mi Friedrich ne može reci jesu li moje fotografije umjetnost? Što je uopce umjetnost? Ostarjela sam, a da me nisu uputili u odrastanje. Nazivaju me umjetnicom, premda o umjetnosti ne znam ništa. Moje su fotografije lov trenutka u koji sam ulovljena i sama. Otimam se vremenu kao muha paucini i to nazivaju umjetnošcu! Je li umjetnost bilježiti dubinu? Bilježiti? Nije li i ova rijec infinitiv...? Fotografirati, bilježiti, loviti, uhvatiti."
Author: Jasna Horvat
14. "And from there, he wandered off into an argument with Friedrich Schiller's grandiose statement that human stupidity was what the gods fought in vain. Not so, in Toby's opinion, and no excuse for anybody, whether god or man. What the gods and all reasonable humans fought in vain wasn't stupidity at all. It was sheer, wanton, bloody indifference to anybody's interests but their own."
Author: John Le Carré

Author: Josh Lieb

Thou gifest me such hope and courage, and I haf nothing to gif back but a full heart and these empty hands," cried the Professor, quite overcome.Jo never, never would learn to be proper, for when he said that as they stood upon the steps, she just put both hands into his, whispering tenderly, "Not empty now," and, stooping down, kissed her Friedrich under the umbrella."
Author: Louisa May Alcott

Author: Louisa May Alcott
18. "Unless you are as smart as Johann Karl Friedrich Gauss, savvy as a half-blind Calcutta bootblack, tough as General William Tecumseh Sherman, rich as the Queen of England, emotionally resilient as a Red Sox fan, and as generally able to take care of yourself as the average nuclear missile submarine commander, you should never have been allowed near this document."
Author: Neal Stephenson
19. "In describing the honourable mission I charged him with, M. Pernety informed me that he made my name known to you. This leads me to confess that I am not as completely unknown to you as you might believe, but that fearing the ridicule attached to a female scientist, I have previously taken the name of M. LeBlanc in communicating to you those notes that, no doubt, do not deserve the indulgence with which you have responded.{Explaining her use of a male pseudonym in a letter to Carl Friedrich Gauss, 1807}"
Author: You

"Central planning inevitably leads to economic chaos and failure.Friedrich Hayek called the delusion that a single person or a groupof government planners could possibly possess the knowledge to planan entire economy a "fatal conceit." The overwhelming historicalevidence is that the more freedom a nation has, the more economicopportunities will exist and the more dynamic that nation's economywill be. Likewise, the more regulations, controls, taxes, governmentrunindustries, protectionism, and other forms of interventionism thatexists, the poorer the country will become."

Kindness consents very readily to the removal of its object – we have all met people whose kindness to animals is constantly leading them to kill animals lest they should suffer. Kindness, merely as such, cares not whether its object becomes good or bad, provided only that it escapes suffering."
