Nietzsche: Thus Spoke Zarathustra


Only man placed values in things to preserve himself—he alone created a meaning for things, a human meaning Therefore he calls himself "man," which means: the esteemer.

To esteem is to create: hear this, you creatorsl Esteeming itself is of all esteemed things the most estimable treasure. Through esteeming alone is there value: and without esteeming, the nut of existence would be hollow. Hear this, you creators!

Change of values—that is a change of creators. Who ever must be a creator always annihilates.

First, peoples were creators; and only in later times, individuals. Verily, the individual himself is still the most recent creation.

— Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra, pg. 59
