Friedrich Nietzsche

Friedrich Nietzsche (German Philosopher, 1844-1900)

“On the contrary, let me declare expressly that in the days when mankind was not yet ashamed of its cruelty, life on earth was more cheerful than it is now that pessimists exist.”

  • From Friedrich Nietzsche’s On the Genealogy of Morals (second essay, section 7), translated by Walter Kaufmann in Basic Writings of Nietzsche (Modern Library, 1995, 2000).
