Egoism is the very essence of a noble soul.

Fear is the mother of morality.

God is a thought who makes crooked all that is straight.

Idleness is the parent of psychology.

In every real man a child is hidden that wants to play.

In heaven, all the interesting people are missing.

In individuals, insanity is rare; but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule.

OK, that made me laugh. How very true it is... With all our pride and self-relience, it is still hard to imagine this embarassing thing that houses us could be the body of a god.

So... is that "truth" the only way that exists? Or might he be demonstrating that:

@Nitish,
Love ya hehe I asked someone for this hehe I cant remmber. However how valid is it? thx anyways.


One important fact about him is that he is in reality the total opposite of what he sounds like. He sounds like a dry bold man however in reality he was not. He put up this act as he hated that nice part of him self! He saw life as a misery and pain after few episodes in his life than he choice to live life that way. In reality when he was a child he was called the young minster! He was truly a man that had the deepest knowledge about human mind and the reason behind the reason of our actions! They call him an atheist but he was not that. He was a seeker and he was not a blind follower! He put forward ideas to challenge the view of religion and in a way purify it and make sense of why it is what religions says!

@Nitish,
Other than the whole 'god is dead' concept, I like "Truths are illusions whose illusoriness is overlooked." (From On Truth and Falsehood in an Extra-Moral Sense)
