"Surrender to necessity is exactly what I do not teach- for one must first know this necessity to be necessary. There may perhaps be many necessities; but in general this inclination is simply a bed of idleness. Happiness lies in rapidity of feeling and thinking: everything else is slow, gradual, and stupid. Happiness is a process; The man who could feel the progress of a ray of light would be greatly enraptured, for it is very rapid."
- Friedrich Nietzsche, The Complete Works Of Friedrich Nietzsche Volume 8 (via violentwavesofemotion)
