Friedrich Nietzsche

Friedrich Nietzsche (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

“It is the profound, suspicious fear, an incurable pessimism, which compels whole centuries to fasten their teeth into a religious interpretation of existence … Piety, the “Life in God,” regarded in this light, would appear as the most elaborate and ultimate product of the fear of truth … as the will to inversion of truth, to untruth at any price.”

Friedrich Nietzsche, Beyond Good and Evil
