Thanks. Found a copy on ebay. 15 bucks, can't go wrong.

Yeah, that was a safe buy.

Interestingly,  did a Google search and there are many opinions about what translation is best. But generally it seems Kaufmann is the preferred non-scholastic version. 

My opinion was formed on my own based on reading various translators.  That was many years ago and I wouldn't have the slightest idea who to recommend as a second preference.

How about the German original?

 

Actually, that would be my first preference. :P

Yeah, that was easy for you to say.  

 

If I had the ability to read German I surely would make that recommendation to anyone who asked and could read Germany.  Seems that most Germans can read German.

It kinda comes with the territory.

 

Although I won't tire of reminding you that I am Swiss German.

 

No offence to my German friends meant, of course.

Yeah, well, a lot of Swiss people I have known claim to be French, not German.  I mean, the money is printed in French and the National language seems to be French.

 

In a way I can't blame them though.

How people keep correcting us when we are young!  There is always some bad habit or other they tell us we ought to get over.  Yet most bad habits are tools to help us through life.

Experience, as a desire for experience, does not come off.  We must not study ourselves while having an experience.

That was the last of my collection of Nietzsche quotes.

 

I will start a new thread with Albert Camus quotes.

So Nietzsche famously said that order rises from chaos or sth like that.

And he wasn't the first to suggest that order rises from chaos, but apparently he subscribed to that idea.

Ya know, chaos rises out of order as well,

it's coming.

ok, back to Camus "In the midst of chaos, I found there was, within me, an invincible calm."

We gonna need to Camus up for what's coming. Good luck to all bums who find within them something stronger, something better,,,,,
