"Meaning and morality of One's life come from within oneself. Healthy, strong individuals seek self expansion by experimenting and by living dangerously. Life consists of an infinite number of possibilities and the healthy person explores as many of them as possible. Religions that teach pity, self-contempt, humility, self-restraint and guilt are incorrect. The good life is ever changing, challenging, devoid of regret, intense, creative and risky.” - F. Nietzsche
I haven't been able to trace this back to any of his written works so I've no idea whether or not he actually said it but this quote has always pushed me further than I was comfortable with when faced with large, impending changes, from my hesitant apostasy to currently moving forward with the goals I hold dearest to my heart.
"I know where I'm going and I know the truth, and I don't have to be what you want me to be. I'm free to be what I want."
