The Hour of the Star
One and the same thing can at the same time be good, bad, and indifferent, e.g., music is good to the melancholy, bad to those who mourn, and neither good nor bad to the deaf
Everyone who wants to do good to the human race always ends in universal bullying
I have found little that is �good� about human beings on the whole. In my experience most of them are trash, no matter whether they publicly subscribe to this or that ethical doctrine or to none at all. That is something that you cannot say aloud, or perhaps even think
I am easily satisfied with the very best
Whatever you are, be a good one
I am for those means which will give the greatest good to the greatest number
All good things are wild, and free
He that has satisfied his thirst turns his back on the well
Good things, when short, are twice as good

On Anger: "For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind."
On Destiny: "Our destiny exercises its influence over us even when, as yet, we have not learned its nature: it is our future that lays down the law of our today."
Human, All Too Human
On Friendship: "A crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love."
