A Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche on virtue, sleep, and friedrich nietzsche

Now know I well what people sought formerly above all else when they sought Teachers of virtue.  Good sleep they sought for themselves, and poppy-head virtues to promote it!
To all those be-lauded sages of the academic chairs, wisdom was sleep Without dreams:  they knew no higher significance of life.
Even at present, to be sure, there are some like this preacher of virtue, and not always so honorable:  but their time is past. 
And not much longer do they stand:  there they already lie.
Blessed are those drowsy ones:  for they shall soon nod to sleep.--Thus spoke Zarathustra.

A Quote by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche on dance, calling, being, and alpha and omega

"If my virtue be a dancers virtue
And if I have often sprung with both feet
    into golden-emerald rapture
And if it be an Alpha and Omega
    that everything heavy shall become light
Every body a dancer
And every Spirit a bird:
Verily, that is my Alpha and Omega"

A Quote by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche on dancing and education

Dancing in all its forms cannot be excluded from the curriculum of all noble education; dancing with the feet,
with ideas, with words, and, need I add that one must also be able to dance with the pen?
