Little Black Classics Aphorisms On Love and Hate

Little Black Classics Aphorisms On Love and Hate - Friedrich Nietzsche A collection of the German Philosopher Nietzche's thoughts on love, the human condition, feelings and marriage, set in short, devourable segments.

This was a marvellous collection. I swept through this as if my life dependended upon it: and perhaps it does.

There are segments which are truer than others, and some which are obviously products of the time Nietzche was writing in. It seemed a confusing batch at times, too, for I'm not sure Nietzche really, truly believed all he was writing, as hypocrisy was often rife within. It is quotable and will provide conversions aplenty, though perhaps we should forgive a man from a different time his views on women, paradoxical as they were.
