In Germany there is much complaining about my "eccentricities." But since it is not known where my centre is, it won't be easy to find out where or when I have thus far been "eccentric." That I was a philologist, for example, meant that I was outside my center (which fortunately does not mean that I was a poor philologist). Likewise, I now regard my having been a Wagnerian as eccentric. It was a highly dangerous experiment; now that I know it did not ruin me, I also know what significance it had for me - it was the most severe test of my character.
Letter to Carl Fuchs (14 December 1887)
We [Germany] require an unconditional union with Russia, together with a mutual plan of action which shall not permit any English schemes to obtain mastery in Russia. No American future!

Friedrich Nietzsche Quote of the DayMonday, 26 October 2020
The only happiness lies in reason; all the rest of the world is dismal. The highest reason, however, I see in the work of the artist ... Happiness lies in the swiftness of feeling and thinking: all the rest of the world is slow, gradual, and stupid.Notes (1875)
