John Neihardt quotes ~
• “The only cowards are sinners; fighting the fight is all.”
• “Everything the Power of the World does is in a circle. The Sky is round and I have heard that the earth is round like a ball and so are all the stars. The Wind, in its greatest power, whirls. Birds make their nests in circles. ... The sun comes forth and goes down again in a circle. The moon does the same, and both are round. Even the seasons form a great circle in their changing, and always come back again to where they were.” - Black Elk Speaks

Friedrich Nietzsche
b. 10-15-1844; Röcken bei Lützen, Prussia (Germany)
d. 8-25-1900; Weimar, Saxony

Friedrich Nietzsche, the youngest person to ever hold professorhip as the Chair of Classical Philology at the University of Basel, was a 19th century philosopher who deeply questioned religion, morality, culture and science of an increasingly objectified and materialistic world, echoing American Ralph Waldo Emerson.

While accused of being the inspiration for nazism, he actually broke with his anti-Semetic editor and found his sister and brother-in-laws efforts to establish a “Germanic” colony in Paraguay laughable. Regretably it was his estranged sister and mother who “edited” his writings and estate during his mental breakdown and death.

Carl Gustav Jung read Nietzsche as a student and “spoke informally to members of his inner circle about a thinker whose works had not only overwhelmed him with the depth of their understanding of human nature but also provided the philosophical sources of many of his own psychological and metapsychological ideas” between 1934-39.

Friedrich Nietzsche quotes ~
• “In large states public education will always be mediocre, for the same reason that in large kitchens the cooking is usually bad.”
• “All sciences are now under the obligation to prepare the ground for the future task of the philosopher, which is to solve the problem of value, to determine the true hierarchy of values.”
• “And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you.”
• “Art is the proper task of life.”
• “The essence of all beautiful art, all great art, is gratitude.”
• “He who laughs best today, will also laughs last.”
• “Insanity in individuals is something rare - but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule.”
• “One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star.”
• “That which does not kill us makes us stronger.”
