~"On Reading and Writing"~
Friedrich Nietzsche (1844 - 1900) German philosopher
The visionary lies to himself, the liar only to others.
To predict the behavior of ordinary people in advance, you only have to assume that they will always try to escape a disagreeable situation with the smallest possible expenditure of intelligence.
You need chaos in your soul to give birth to a dancing star.
There is always some madness in love. But there is also always some reason in madness.
Less recognized as a master of the bon mot than as the greatest philosopher of the 19th century, Friedrich Nietzsche famously summed up the creative process with these words.
