    “My formula for greatness in a human being is amor fati: that one wants nothing to be different, not forward, not backward, not in all eternity. Not merely bear what is necessary, still less conceal it...but love it.”

    ― Friedrich Nietzsche, On the Genealogy of Morals/Ecce Homo

    Two good Cynic quotes:

    "As for a wife, if she's ugly you'll be swearing and if she's pretty you'll be sharing."

    "He doesn't own a fortune... his fortune owns him."

    "There was so much in you that charmed me that I felt I must tell you something about yourself. I thought how tragic it would be if you were wasted." - Oscar Wilde
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    I know nothing, I am neither woman nor girl; I have been living in a dream and when someone kissed me, it made me want to laugh. Now I am here before you, it seems as though I have just awakened and it is morning.

    A man creates. A parasite says, 'What will the neighbors think?'
    A man invents. A parasite says, 'Watch out, or you might tread on the toes of God... '
