the will to power quotes, nietzscheThe Will to Power is a book containing selectively reordered notes from Friedrich Nietzsche's notebooks, by his sister Elisabeth and Peter Gast. It was first released with other unpublished writings in 1901.


My idea is that every specific body strives to become master over all space and to extend its force (--its will to power:) and to thrust back all that resists its extension. But it continually encounters similar efforts on the part of other bodies and ends by coming to an arrangement ("union") with those of them that are sufficiently related to it: thus they then conspire together for power. And the process goes on--
The Will to Power, s.636
Nietzsche Quotes
The possibility has been established for the production of...a Master Race, the future "masters of the earth"...made to endure for millennia - a higher kind of men who... employ democratic Europe as their most pliant and supple instrument for getting hold of the destinies of the earth.
The Will to Power (1888). Sec. 960
Nietzsche Quotes
There is only nobility of birth, only nobility of blood. When one speaks of "aristocrats of the spirit," reasons are usually not lacking for concealing something. As is well known, it is a favorite term among ambitious Jews. For spirit alone does not make noble. Rather, there must be something to ennoble the spirit. What then is required? Blood.
The Will to Power (1888). Sec. 942
Nietzsche Quotes
The homogenizing of European man... requires a justification: it lies in serving a higher sovereign species that stands upon the former which can raise itself to its task only by doing this. Not merely a Master Race whose sole task is to rule, but a Race with its own sphere of life, with an excess of strength... strong enough to have no need of the tyranny of the virtue-imperative.
The Will to Power (1888). Sec. 898
Nietzsche Quotes
The rights a man arrogates to himself are related to the duties he imposes on himself, to the tasks to which he feels equal. The great majority of men have no right to existence, but are a misfortune to higher men.
The Will to Power (1888). Sec. 872
Nietzsche Quotes
The stronger becomes master of the weaker, in so far as the latter cannot assert its degree of independence - here there is no mercy, no forbearance, even less a respect for "laws."
Sec. 630, The Will to Power
Nietzsche Quotes
A declaration of war on the masses by Higher Men is needed!... Everything that makes soft and effeminate, that serves the end of the People or the Feminine, works in favor of Universal Suffrage, i.e. the domination of the Inferior Men. But we should take reprisal and bring this whole affair to light and the bar of judgment.
Sec. 864, The Will to Power
Nietzsche Quotes
If there is something to pardon in everything, there is also something to condemn.

Nietzsche Quotes
The Beautiful exists just as little as the True. In every case it is a question of the conditions of preservation of a certain type of man: thus the herd-man will experience the value feeling of the True in different things than will the Overman.
The Will to Power (1888). Sec. 804
Nietzsche Quotes
The states in which we infuse a transfiguration and a fullness into things and poetize about them until they reflect back our fullness and joy in life...three elements principally: sexuality, intoxication and cruelty - all belonging to the oldest festal joys.
The Will to Power (1888). Sec. 801
Nietzsche Quotes
Morality is: the mediocre are worth more than the exceptions... I abhore Christianity with a deadly hatred.
The Will to Power (1888). Sec. 685
Nietzsche Quotes
The stronger becomes master of the weaker, in so far as the latter cannot assert its degree of independence - here there is no mercy, no forbearance, even less a respect for "laws."
The Will to Power (1888). Sec. 630
Nietzsche Quotes
To those human beings who are of any concern to me I wish suffering, desolation, sickness, ill-treatment, indignities - I wish that they should not remain unfamiliar with profound self-contempt, the torture of self-mistrust, the wretchedness of the vanquished: I have no pity for them, because I wish them the only thing that can prove today whether one is worth anything or not - that one endures.
The Will to Power (1888). Sec 481
Nietzsche Quotes
A man as he ought to be: that sounds to us as insipid as "a tree as it ought to be."
The Will to Power (1888). Sec. 332
