Quotation by Friedrich Nietzsche:

A friend should be a master at guessing and keeping still: you must not want to see everything.


Friedrich Nietzsche     (more by this author)

1844-1900 (Age at death: 56 approx.)

Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche (October 15, 1844- August 25, 1900) was a 19th- century German philosopher and classical philologist. He wrote critical texts on religion, morality, contemporary culture, philosophy and science, using a distinctive German-language style and displaying a fondness for metaphor, irony and aphorism.

Nietzsche's influence remains substantial within and beyond philosophy, notably in existentialism and postmodernism. His style and radical questioning of the value and objectivity of truth have resulted in much commentary and interpretation, mostly in the continental tradition, and to a lesser extent in analytic philosophy.

Country: Germany

Type: Prose
Context: Unknown
