Friedrich Nietzsche

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.

Friedrich Nietzsche (1844 - 1900)
