He who seeks rest finds boredom. He who seeks work finds rest. -- Dylan Thomas
Nietzsche is probably the most misquoted-out-of-context writer there is (although you're not doing so, Mike). Everybody knows his "God is dead" quote and assumes it's anti-religion, but doesn't know the follow on that makes it a comment on humanity's sorry state: "Of his pity for man has God died."
Yes, Nietzsche gets a bad rap due in part to the Nazis, who distorted some of his writings to justify their warped philosophy.I picked up an English-language version of Zarathustra in order to understand Nietzsche better.
