Quotes

Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche also said...




The best way to begin each day well is to think upon awakening whether we could not give at least one person pleasure on this day.





All of us harbour in ourselves hidden gardens and plantations;





Let it not be your honor henceforth whence you come, but where you go!





Become who you are!





He who would learn to fly one day must first learn to stand and walk and run and climb and dance; one cannot fly into flying.”





On the mountains of truth you can never climb in vain: either you will reach a point higher up today, or you will be training your powers so that you will be able to climb higher tomorrow.
