Lovely quotations, and certainly very apt in today's world which seems steeped in hopelessness. Our society would do well to put aside our doom-sayers and whiners and reflect on some of these words.

Hey, UH. Great quotes, my friend. Nietzsche was definitely a cynic! This may well be my favorite:

In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer.

Albert Camus

BTW, just wanted to let you know that you said "jope" when I think you meant hope in your opening paragraph. Cheers!

Hey!

Thanx mate for correcting me. I also liked this one by Albert Camus.

Seems like Nietzsche has seen a lot of hard time in his life, think I should read some biography of him. BTW some people will definitely love this quote by Nietzsche and rightly so because he seem to have a point there.
