To Do List

My task:

"All sciences are now under the obligation to prepare the ground for the future task of the philosopher, which is to solve the problem of value, to determine the true hierarchy of values." -- Nietzsche

My challenges:

"A subject for a great poet would be God's boredom after the seventh day of creation." -- Nietzsche.

"Art is not merely an imitation of the reality of nature, but in truth a metaphysical supplement to the reality of nature, placed alongside thereof for its conquest." -- Nietzsche

Why I am a poet: "I do not know what the spirit of a philosopher could more wish to be than a good dancer. For the dance is his ideal, also his fine art, finally also the only kind of piety he knows, his "divine service." " -- Nietzsche

"The essence of all beautiful art, all great art, is gratitude." -- Nietzsche

"For art to exist, for any sort of aesthetic activity to exist, a certain physiological precondition is indispensable: intoxication." -- Nietzsche
