Nietzsche Quote of the Week

"Among the things that can drive a thinker to despair is the knowledge that the illogical is necessary for man and that much good comes of it. It is so firmly lodged in the passions, in speech, in art, in religion, and generally in everything which endows life with value, that one cannot extricate it without doing irreparable harm to these beautiful things. Only the very naive are capable of thinking that the nature of man can be transformed into a purely logical one..." - F. Nietzsche, p34, "Human, All Too Human"
