Front cover of "The Anti-Christ" by Friedrich Nietzsche“Man is not to look outwards, he is to look inwards into himself, he is not to look prudently and cautiously into things as a learner, he is not to look at all, he is to suffer . . . And he is to suffer as to need the priest always . . . A savior is needed.”

–Friedrich Nietzsche, The Anti-Christ


“[B]elief removes no mountains but places mountains where there are none. A hasty walk through a madhouse enlightens sufficiently on these matters. Not to a priest to be sure: for he denies by instinct that sickness is sickness and a madhouse is a madhouse.”
