That would be my favourite.

I'm disappointed that there is no "one must be an ocean to receive a polluted river and not be defiled."

Yes, that's one of my favs. too!

Some more gems:


He that feeds the hungry refreshes his own soul.

What matter about long life - what warrior wishes to be spared?

Blood-related with my enemies, I want withal to see my blood honoured in theirs.

Where is beauty? Where I must will with my whole will; where I will love and perish, that an image may not remain merely an image.

In the end one experiences onlyoneself.

Courage is the best slayer - courage which attacks; it slays even death itself, for it says - "Was that life? Well! Once more!"

"Of Hazard" - that is the oldest nobility in the world.

For the sake of folly, wisdom is mixed in all things.

Of man there is little here: therefore do their women masculinise themselves; for only he who is man enough, will save the woman in woman.

The half and half spoil every whole.

Noble souls desire to have nothing gratituously - least of all life.

It is a noble dictum which says - what life promises us, that promise will we keep to life!

Only the doer learneth.

To live as I incline or not to live at all.

Rather despair than submit yourselves.

He has heart who knows fear but vanquishes it; who sees the abyss with pride.

In solitude there grows what any one brings into it - also the brute in one's nature; thus is solitude unadvisable unto many.

All great love does not seek love - it seeks more.

In short as the proverb of Zarathustra saith:" "What doth it matter!"

Nietzsche wrote:
"Zarathustra said this to his heart as the sun stood at noon: then he looked inquiringly into the sky - for he heard above him the sharp cry of a bird.  And behold!  An eagle was sweeping through the air in wide circles, and from it was hanging a serpent, not like a prey but like a friend: for it was coiled around the eagle's neck.
      "It is my animals!" said Zarathustra and rejoiced in his heart.
      "The proudest animal under the sun and the wisest animal under the sun - they have come scouting.
      "They wanted to learn if Zarathustra was still alive.  Am I in fact alive?
      "I found it more dangerous among men than among animals; Zarathustra is following dangerous paths.  May my animals lead me!"
      When Zarathustra had said this he recalled the words of the saint in the forest, sighed, and spoke thus to his heart:
      "I  wish I were wise!  I wish I were wise from the heart of me, like my serpent!
      "But I am asking the impossible: therefore I ask my pride always to go along with my wisdom!
      "And if one day my wisdom should desert me - ah, it loves to fly away! - then may my pride too fly with my folly!"

      Thus began Zarathustra's down-going." [TSZ, Prologue, 10]

Nietzsche wrote:
"       You are not eagles: so neither do you know the spirit's joy in terror.  And he who is not a bird shall not make his home above abysses.
      You are tepid: but all deep knowledge flows cold.  The innermost wells of the spirit are ice-cold: a refreshment to hot hands and handlers.
In truth, you do not know the spirit's pride!  But even less could you endure the spirit's modesty, if it should ever deign to speak!" [TSZ, Philosophers]

Nietzsche wrote:
"       "'I shall return, with this sun, with this earth, with this eagle, with this serpent - not to a new life or a better life or a similar life:
      "' I shall return eternally to this identical and self-same life, in the greatest things and in the smallest, to teach once more the eternal recurrence of all things." [TSZ, Convalescent, 2]

Nietzsche wrote:
"       "Tell me, my animals: all these Higher Men - do they perhaps not smell well?  Oh pure odours around me!  Only now do I know and feel how I love you, my animals."
      And Zarathustra said again: "I love you, my animals!"  But the eagle and the serpent pressed around him when he said these words, and looked up at him.  All three stood silently together in this attitude, and sniffed and breathed in the good air together.  For the air here outside was better than with the Higher Men." [TSZ, Melancholy, 1]


Nietzsche wrote:
                                   "Or like the eagle staring
                                     Long, long into abysses,
                                     Into its abysses:
                                     Oh how they circle down,
                                     Under and in,
                                     Inter ever deeper depths!
                                     Then,
                                     Suddenly, with straight aim,
                                     Quivering flight,
                                     They pounce on lambs,
                                     Headlong down, ravenous,
                                     Lusting for lambs,
                                     Angry at all lamb-souls,
                                     Fiercely angry at all that look
                                     Sheepish, lamb-eyed, curly-woolled,
                                     Grey with lamb-sheep kindliness!

                                     Thus,
                                     Eaglelike, pantherlike,
                                     Are the poet's desires,
                                     Are your desires under a thousand masks,
                                     You fool!  You poet!" [TSZ, Mlancholy, 3]


Nietzsche wrote:
"       "For fear - is the exception with us.  Courage, however, and adventure and joy in the unknown, the unattempted - courage seems to me the whole pre-history of man.
      "He has envied the wildest, most courageous animals all their virtues and robbed them of them: only thus did he become - man.
      "This courage, at length grown subtle, spiritual, intellectual, this human courage with eagle's wings and serpent's wisdom: this, it seems to me, is today called - "" [TSZ, Science]


Nietzsche wrote:
""Come!  Come!  Midnight is coming on!" and his voice had altered.  But still he did not move from his place: then it grew yet more still and mysterious, and everything listened, even the ass and Zarathustra's animals of honour, the eagle and the serpent, likewise Zarathustra's cave and the great, cool moon and the night itself.  Zarathustra, however, laid his hand to his lips for the third time and said:
      "Come!  Come!  Come!  Let us walk now!  The hour has come: let us walk into the night!" [TSZ, Intoxicated Song, 2]
