THUS SPAKE ZARATHUSTRA
Friedrich Nietzsche (1891) (translated by Thomas Common; see complete text)

Photo 1 (id: 001_00)

001_32_.jpg

Our faith in others betrayeth wherein we would fain have faith in ourselves. Our longing for a friend is our betrayer.

Photo 2 (id: 001_32)

002_04_.jpg

And often with our love we want merely to overleap envy. And often we attack and make ourselves enemies, to conceal that we are vulnerable.

Photo 3 (id: 002_04)

002_20_.jpg

"Be at least mine enemy!"- thus speaketh the true reverence, which doth not venture to solicit friendship.

Photo 4 (id: 002_20)

002_21_.jpg

If one would have a friend, then must one also be willing to wage war for him: and in order to wage war, one must be capable of being an enemy.

Photo 5 (id: 002_21)

002_25_.jpg

One ought still to honour the enemy in one's friend. Canst thou go nigh unto thy friend, and not go over to him?

Photo 6 (id: 002_25)

002_28_.jpg

In one's friend one shall have one's best enemy. Thou shalt be closest unto him with thy heart when thou withstandest him.

Photo 7 (id: 002_28)

002_33_.jpg

Thou wouldst wear no raiment before thy friend? It is in honour of thy friend that thou showest thyself to him as thou art? But he wisheth thee to the devil on that account!

Photo 8 (id: 002_33)

002_35_.jpg

He who maketh no secret of himself shocketh: so much reason have ye to fear nakedness! Aye, if ye were gods, ye could then be ashamed of clothing!

Photo 9 (id: 002_35)

003_21_.jpg

Thou canst not adorn thyself fine enough for thy friend; for thou shalt be unto him an arrow and a longing for the Superman.

Photo 10 (id: 003_21)

003_22_.jpg

Sawest thou ever thy friend asleep- to know how he looketh? What is usually the countenance of thy friend? It is thine own countenance, in a coarse and imperfect mirror.

Photo 11 (id: 003_22)

003_24_.jpg

Sawest thou ever thy friend asleep? Wert thou not dismayed at thy friend looking so? O my friend, man is something that hath to be surpassed.

Photo 12 (id: 003_24)

003_29_.jpg

In divining and keeping silence shall the friend be a master: not everything must thou wish to see. Thy dream shall disclose unto thee what thy friend doeth when awake.

Photo 13 (id: 003_29)

003_30_.jpg

Let thy pity be a divining: to know first if thy friend wanteth pity. Perhaps he loveth in thee the unmoved eye, and the look of eternity.

Photo 14 (id: 003_30)

004_24_.jpg

Let thy pity for thy friend be hid under a hard shell; thou shalt bite out a tooth upon it. Thus will it have delicacy and sweetness.

Photo 15 (id: 004_24)

004_36_.jpg

Art thou pure air and solitude and bread and medicine to thy friend? Many a one cannot loosen his own fetters, but is nevertheless his friend's emancipator.

Photo 16 (id: 004_36)

005_30_.jpg

Art thou a slave? Then thou canst not be a friend. Art thou a tyrant? Then thou canst not have friends.

Photo 17 (id: 005_30)

005_33_.jpg

Far too long hath there been a slave and a tyrant concealed in woman. On that account woman is not yet capable of friendship: she knoweth only love.

Photo 18 (id: 005_33)

005_35_.jpg

In woman's love there is injustice and blindness to all she doth not love. And even in woman's conscious love, there is still always surprise and lightning and night, along with the light.

Photo 19 (id: 005_35)

005_E_.jpg

As yet woman is not capable of friendship: women are still cats and birds. Or at the best, cows.

Photo 20 (id: 005_E)

006_02_.jpg

As yet woman is not capable of friendship. But tell me, ye men, who of you is capable of friendship?

Photo 21 (id: 006_02)

006_24_.jpg

Oh! your poverty, ye men, and your sordidness of soul! As much as ye give to your friend, will I give even to my foe, and will not have become poorer thereby.

Photo 22 (id: 006_24)

006_26_.jpg

There is comradeship: may there be friendship!

Photo 23 (id: 006_26)

006_32=_.jpg

Thus spake Zarathustra.

15. The Thousand and One Goals

Photo 25 (id: 007_06)

007_07_.jpg

MANY lands saw Zarathustra, and many peoples: thus he discovered the good and bad of many peoples. No greater power did Zarathustra find on earth than good and bad.

Photo 26 (id: 007_07)

007_08_.jpg

No people could live without first valuing; if a people will maintain itself, however, it must not value as its neighbour valueth.

Photo 27 (id: 007_08)

007_09_.jpg

Much that passed for good with one people was regarded with scorn and contempt by another: thus I found it. Much found I here called bad, which was there decked with purple honours.

Photo 28 (id: 007_09)

007_10_.jpg

Never did the one neighbour understand the other: ever did his soul marvel at his neighbour's delusion and wickedness.

Photo 29 (id: 007_10)

007_21_.jpg

A table of excellencies hangeth over every people. Lo! it is the table of their triumphs; lo! it is the voice of their Will to Power.
