On Love:

Love is blind; friendship closes its eyes.

Love is not consolation. It is light.

Love is a state in which a man sees things most decidedly as the are not.

Love is the state in which man sees things Most widely different from what they are.

On Life:

A sedentary life is the real sin against the Holy Spirit. Only those thoughts that come by walking have any value.

All of life is a dispute over taste and tasting.

All prejudices may be traced back to the intestines. A sedentary life is the real sin against the Holy Ghost.

Believe me The secret of reaping the greatest fruitfulness and the greatest enjoyment from life is to live dangerously.

Most of the time in married life is taken up by talk.

On Death:

Let us beware of saying that death is the opposite of life. The living being is only a species of the dead, and a very rare species.

On Success:

Success has always been a great liar.

On Honesty:

You should seek your enemy, you should wage your war – a war for your opinions. And when your opinion is defeatedy our honesty should still cry triumph over that!
(From: Thus Spoke Zarathustra)

On Fear:

Fear is the mother of morality.

On Knowledge:

It is not when truth is dirty, but when it is shallow, that the lover of knowledge is reluctant to step into its waters.

On God:

God is a thought who makes crooked all that is straight.

When Zarathustra was alone … he said to his heart ‘Could it be possible This old saint in the forest hath not yet heard of it, that God is dead
