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, 01 March 2021
Because we have for millenia made moral, aesthetic, religious demands on the world, looked upon it with blind desire, passion or fear, and abandoned ourselves to the bad habits of illogical thinking, this world has gradually become so marvelously variegated, frightful, meaningful, soulful, it has acquired color - but we have been the colorists: it is the human intellect that has made appearances appear and transported its erroneous basic conceptions into things.Human, all too Human, s.16
