Quote 1

"Imagine a being like nature, wasteful beyond measure, indifferent beyond measure, without purposes and consideration, without mercy and justice, fertile and desolate and uncertain at the same time; imagine indifference itself as a power - how could you live according to this indifference? Is that not precisely wanting to be other than this nature?

Is not living - estimating, preferring, being unjust, being limited - wanting to be different? "

Aphorism 1

Men can be convinced to feel proud or guilty of anything--even the same thing.
