A collection of quotes. Not maintained, but kept for my own interest.
One repays a teacher badly if one always remains nothing but a pupil. BGaE In heaven, all the interesting people are missing. Is man merely a mistake of God's? Or God merely a mistake of man? TotI I mistrust all systematizers and avoid them. The will to a system is a lack of integrity. TotI But Heraclitus will always be right in this, that being is an empty fiction. The 'apparent' world is the only one: the 'real' world has only been lyingly added... TotI We don't know ourselves, we knowledgeable people—we are personally ignorant about ourselves. GoM Nobody is more inferior than those who insist on being equal.
Happiness was never important. The problem is that we don't know what we really want. What makes us happy is not to get what we want. But to dream about it. Happiness is for opportunists. So I think that the only life of deep satisfaction is a life of eternal struggle, especially struggle with oneself. If you want to remain happy, just remain stupid. Authentic masters are never happy; happiness is a category of slaves.
