Friedrich Nietzsche (1844--1900), German philosopher. Human, All Too Human, aphorism 332 (1878).

Friedrich Nietzsche (18441900), German philosopher. The Wanderer and His Shadow, aphorism 251 (1880).

Friedrich Nietzsche (18441900), German philosopher. Twilight of the Idols, "Expeditions of an Untimely Man," aphorism 38 (1889).


"Authority poisons everybody who takes authority on himself."
