The Rhinoceros

Walk alone like a rhinoceros.

"In solitude the solitary man consumes himself, in the crowd, the crowd consumes him. Now choose".
[Nietzsche, AOM 348]

"No bird soars too high if he soars with his own wings".

"In affairs of the highest philosophical kind, all married men are suspect".
[Nietzsche, Human 436]

"Solitude is the school of genius".

"For the pious there is no solitude; this invention was made by us, the godless".
[Nietzsche, GS 367]

"The contagion is very dangerous in the crowd. A man must either imitate the vicious, or hate them".
