Convictions are more dangerous enemies of the truth than lies.
We ought to learn from the kine one thing: ruminating.
I cannot believe in a God who wants to be praised all the time.
Man is a rope stretched between the animal and the Superman - a rope over an abyss.
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.

One will rarely err if extreme actions be ascribed to vanity, ordinary actions to habit, and mean actions to fear.
