A Quote by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche on joy, life, nobility, soul, and wishes

This is the manner of noble souls: they do not want to have anything for nothing; least of all, life. Whoever is of the mob wants to live for nothing; we others, however, to whom life gave itself, we always think about what we might best give in return...

One should not wish to enjoy where one does not give joy.
