Fun Quote Of The Day!

“It is always the wrong people who feel guilty”

– Erich Maria Remarque

“I can resist everything except temptation”

– Oscar Wilde

When people think of the German philosopher Nietzsche, they often think of a misanthropic, bitter nihilist. It is true that Nietzsche was often critical of human nature and often pointed out the faults of societies, but he had another side which loved music, art and said amazingly wise things about love and friendship. Below I will quote some of the most moving ones. Enjoy and ponder!

“It is not the lack of love, but the lack of friendship which makes unhappy marriages”

“There is always some madness in love. But there is always some reason in madness”.

“Shared joys make friends. Not shared sufferings”

“There is not enough love and goodness in the world to permit giving any of it away to imaginary beings”

“Love is not consolation. It is Light”
