We ought to learn from the kine one thing: ruminating.
Friedrich Nietzsche (1844 - 1900)

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.
Source: Ecce Homo, 1888
Wisdom sets bounds even to knowledge.
Before the effect one believes in different causes than one does afterward.
In the mountains the shortest way is from peak to peak: but for that, one must have long legs. Aphorisms should be peaks.
