Friedrich Nietzsche (1891) (translated by Thomas Common; see complete text)

Photo 1 (id: 027_1_002)


And how nicely can doggish lust beg for a piece of spirit, when a piece of flesh is denied it!

Photo 2 (id: 027_2_003)


Ye love tragedies and all that breaketh the heart? But I am distrustful of your doggish lust.

Photo 3 (id: 027_2_004)


Ye have too cruel eyes, and ye look wantonly towards the sufferers. Hath not your lust just disguised itself and taken the name of fellow-suffering?

Photo 4 (id: 027_3_001)


And also this parable give I unto you: Not a few who meant to cast out their devil, went thereby into the swine themselves.

Photo 5 (id: 027_3_002)


To whom chastity is difficult, it is to be dissuaded: lest it become the road to hell- to filth and lust of soul.

Photo 6 (id: 027_3_003)


Do I speak of filthy things? That is not the worst thing for me to do.

Photo 7 (id: 027_4_001)


Not when the truth is filthy, but when it is shallow, doth the discerning one go unwillingly into its waters.

Photo 8 (id: 027_4_002)


Verily, there are chaste ones from their very nature; they are gentler of heart, and laugh better and oftener than you.

Photo 9 (id: 027_4_003)


They laugh also at chastity, and ask: "What is chastity?

Photo 10 (id: 027_4_004)


Is chastity not folly? But the folly came unto us, and not we unto it.

Photo 11 (id: 027_5_001)


We offered that guest harbour and heart: now it dwelleth with us- let it stay as long as it will!"-

Photo 12 (id: 027_5_002)


Thus spake Zarathustra.

Photo 13 (id: 027_5_003)


14. The Friend

Photo 14 (id: 027_5_005)


"ONE is always too many about me"- thinketh the anchorite. "Always once one- that maketh two in the long run!"

Photo 15 (id: 027_6_003)


I and me are always too earnestly in conversation: how could it be endured, if there were not a friend?

Photo 16 (id: 027_6_004)


The friend of the anchorite is always the third one: the third one is the cork which preventeth the conversation of the two sinking into the depth.

Photo 17 (id: 027_7_001)


Ah! there are too many depths for all anchorites. Therefore, do they long so much for a friend and for his elevation.

Photo 18 (id: 027_7_005)
