Thoughts are the shadows of our feelings – always darker, emptier and simpler.”   —   Friedrich Nietzsche

(Sounds to me like Freddy was having kind of a bad day.  Maybe he was going through a bad breakup, or his dog died, or something.  Kind of a bummer quote for a Friday.  Try to have happy, pleasant thoughts, friends.  They will help you to be well and do good.)   —   YUR

There is always some madness in love.  But there is also always some reason in madness.”   —   Friedrich Nietzsche

(So . . . therefore, there is also some reason in love?  Sure.  I’ll buy that.  Love isn’t exactly the easiest thing to define.  And, of course, there are different kinds of love.  But, I suspect he’s referring to the more romantic – crazy and messy – form of love.  It’s a distant memory, but I think I still remember it.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Is man one of God’s blunders or is God on of man’s blunders?”   —   Friedrich Nietzsche

(A condition known as cognitive dissonance prohibits far too many of us from seriously considering this question.  Take a chance, and consider it anyway.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

He who would learn to fly one day must first learn to stand and walk and run and climb and dance; one cannot fly into flying.”   —  Nietzsche

Having stripped myself of all illusions, I have gone mad.”   —   Friedrich Nietzsche

(As analytical and logical as we’d all like to think we are, we all harbor a variety of illusions, great and small.  Some of them are held consciously, but a great number of them lie in our subconsciousness.  The positive – more optimistic – illusions are how we survive this thing called reality.  Be well and do good, dear friends.)   —   YUR
