Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche On Endurance

Friedrich Wilhelm NietzscheFriedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche (October 15, 1844 – August 25, 1900)

To those human beings who are of any concern to me I wish suffering, desolation, sickness, ill-treatment, indignities — I wish that they should not remain unfamiliar with profound self-contempt, the torture of self-mistrust, the wretchedness of the vanquished: I have no pity for them, because I wish them the only thing that can prove today whether one is worth anything or not — that one endures.
