The Antichrist (1888). Foreword
Nietzsche Quotes
What is good? All that heightens the feeling of power in man, the will to power, power itself. What is bad? All that is born of weakness. What is happiness? The feeling that power is growing, that resistance is overcome.
The Antichrist (1888). Sec. 2
Nietzsche Quotes
...to the priestly class - decadence is no more than a means to an end. Men of this sort have a vital interest in making mankind sick, and in confusing the values of "good" and "bad," "true" and "false" in a manner that is not only dangerous to life, but also slanders it.
The Antichrist (1888). Sec. 24
Nietzsche Quotes
The very word "Christianity" is a misunderstanding - in truth, there was only one Christian, and he died on the cross.
The Antichrist (1888). Sec. 39
Nietzsche Quotes
Christianity is called the religion of pity.
The Antichrist, Section 7
Nietzsche Quotes
As an artistic triumph in psychological corruption... the Gospels, in fact, stand alone ... Here we are among Jews: this is the first thing to be borne in mind if we are not to lose the thread of the matter. This positive genius for conjuring up a delusion of personal "holiness" unmatched anywhere else, either in books or by men; this elevation of fraud in word and attitude to the level of an art - all this is not an accident due to the chance talents of an individual, or to any violation of nature. The thing responsible is race.
The Antichrist (1888). Sec. 44
Nietzsche Quotes
The God that Paul invented for himself, a God who "reduced to absurdity" "the wisdom of this world" (especially the two great enemies of superstition, philology and medicine), is in truth only an indication of Paul's resolute determination to accomplish that very thing himself: to give one's own will the name of God, Torah - that is essentially Jewish.
The Antichrist (1888). Sec. 47
Nietzsche Quotes
Against boredom even gods struggle in vain.
The Antichrist (1888). Sec. 48
Nietzsche Quotes
That faith makes blessed under certain circumstances, that blessedness does not make of a fixed idea a true idea, that faith moves no mountains but puts mountains where there are none: a quick walk through a madhouse enlightens one sufficiently about this.
The Antichrist (1888). Sec. 51
Nietzsche Quotes
"Faith" means not wanting to know what is true.
The Antichrist (1888). Sec. 52
Nietzsche Quotes
I call Christianity the one great curse, the one great intrinsic depravity, the one great instinct for revenge for which no expedient is sufficiently poisonous, secret, subterranean, petty - I call it the one immortal blemish of mankind.
The Antichrist (1888). Sec. 62

Foreword, The Antichrist
Nietzsche Quotes
Love is a state in which a man sees things most decidedly as they are not.
Sec. 23, The Antichrist
Nietzsche Quotes
"Sins" are indispensable to every society organized on an ecclesiastical basis; they are the only reliable weapons of power; the priest lives upon sins; it is necessary to him that there be "sinning."
The Antichrist (1888)
Nietzsche Quotes
Whatever a theologian regards as true must be false: there you have almost a criterion of truth.

Friedrich Nietzsche Quote of the Day

Monday, 18 December 2017
The interests of tutelary government and the interests of religion go together hand in hand, so that if the latter begins to die out, the foundation of the state will also be shaken. The belief in a divine order of political affairs, in a mysterium in the existence of the state, has a religious origin; if religion disappears, the state will inevitably lose its old veil of Isis and no longer awaken awe. The sovereignty of the people, seen closely, serves to scare off even the last trace of magic and superstition contained in these feelings; modern democracy is the historical form of the decline of the state.Human, All too Human, Section 8, Paragraph 472
