Whine Tasting: Multidimensional Nietzsche Pairings from StrangeEden's blog

"Words are but symbols for the relations of things to one another and to us; nowhere do they touch upon absolute truth." -Friedrich Nietzsche

"The basic tool for the manipulation of reality is the manipulation of words. If you can control the meaning of words, you can control the people who must use the words." -Philip K Dick

"He who would learn to fly one day must first learn to stand and walk and run and climb and dance; one cannot fly into flying." -Friedrich Nietzsche

“The Guide says there is an art to flying", said Ford, "or rather a knack. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss.”  -Douglas Adams from life the universe and everything

--------------------------------------
“He that writeth in blood and proverbs doth not want to be read, but learnt by heart. In the mountains the shortest way is from peak to peak, but for that route thou must have long legs. Proverbs should be peaks, and those spoken to should be big and tall. The atmosphere rare and pure, danger near and the spirit full of a joyful wickedness: thus are things well matched. I want to have goblins about me, for I am courageous. The courage which scareth away ghosts, createth for itself goblins--it wanteth to laugh.” ―Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra

"The delvers discovered all too rapidly, that trying to fight while a busy goblin was in your underwear was very bad for the concentration.” ―Terry Pratchett, Raising Steam

“I cried out to the fae to appear for me. It was my ill fortune that it was a goblin who answered.” ―Molly Ringle, The Goblins of Bellwater

"He who fights with monsters might take care lest he thereby become a monster. And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you." -Friedrich Nietzsche

"He who makes a beast of himself, gets rid of the pain of being a man." -Hunter S. Thompson Fear and loathing in los vegas.

Speaking of Pairings:

That is actually Dr. Samuel Johnson, not Hunter S Thompson, Who I might say has some really great quotes worth sharing.

"Revenge is an act of passion; vengeance of justice. Injuries are revenged; crimes are avenged."

"The chains of habit are too weak to be felt until they are too strong to be broken."

"Patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel."

"He who has so little knowledge of human nature as to seek happiness by changing anything but his own disposition will waste his life in fruitless efforts."

"Nothing is more hopeless than a scheme of merriment."

Sort of overlooked in 'LHP' circles. Mainly, because no one has suggested it for others. If he was required reading like Nietzsche...
