Ecce Homo – Amor fati


My formula for greatness in a human being is amor fati: that one wants nothing to be different, not forward, not backward, not in all eternity. Not merely bear what is necessary, still less conceal it—all idealism is mendacity in the face of what is necessary—but love it.


Minha fórmula para a grandeza no homem é amor-fati: não querer nada de outro modo, nem para frente, nem para trás, nem em toda eternidade. Não meramente suportar o necessário, e menos ainda dissimulá-lo – todo idealismo é mendacidade diante do necessário -, mas amá-lo.
