The Birth of Tragedy

Excerpt from “An Attempt at Self-Criticism”

“Morality itself what?-may not morality be a “will to disown life,” a secret instinct for annihilation, a principle of decay, of depression, of slader, a beginning of the end? And, consequently, the danger of dangers?…It was against morality, therefore, that my instinct , as an intercessory instinct for life, turned in this questionable book, inventing for itself a fundamental counter-dogma and counter-valuation of life, purely artistic, purely anti-Christian.”

– Friedrich Nietzsche
