Some thoughts by the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) from his famous work “Τhus spoke Zarathustra”

“ … It is true: We love life, not because we are used to living but we are using to loving. There is always a certain madness in love. But also there is always a certain method in madness. And to me too, who love life, it seems that butterflies and soap – bubbles, and whatever is like them among men, know most about happiness …”


Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) who many consider as the most influential modern western philosopher, questioned the legitimacy and social soundness of most modern institutions, religions and political ideologies on the basis that they negated and obstructed the natural potentials of human beings. Their innate qualities to be creative and critical for the benefit of their own existence and in harmony with their own nature to be unique and extraordinary. For Friedrich Nietzsche, modern western society represented a mad human conspiracy to negate human beings their natural right to live freely for life itself and not for society’s “virtual reality” which had castrated them.
