Whenever I climb I am followed by a dog called 'Ego'.
Friedrich Nietzsche (1844 - 1900)

The doer alone learneth.
It is not the strengths, but the durations of great sentiments that make great men.
Out of life's school of war: What does not destroy me, makes me stronger.

Let us beware of saying that death is the opposite of life. The living being is only a species of the dead, and a very rare species.
Blessed are the forgetful: for they get the better even of their blunders.
Against boredom, even the gods struggle in vain.
Is not life a hundred times too short for us to bore ourselves?
My time has not yet come either; some are born posthumously.
Source: Ecce Homo, 1888
Wisdom sets bounds even to knowledge.
