And so, onwards… along a path of wisdom, with a hearty tread, a hearty confidence.. however you may be, be your own source of experience. Throw off your discontent about your nature. Forgive yourself your own self. You have it in your power to merge everything you have lived through – false starts, errors, delusions, passions, your loves and your hopes – into your goal, with nothing left over.
~ Der Übermensch; celebrating the death of pessimism
Human, All Too Human (1878)
If I tried to put it better than Nietzsche, I would have to give up my sanity.
