Aphorisms On Love And Hate
Little Black Classics Aphorisms On Love and Hate - Friedrich Nietzsche

I was a little bit afraid to start this collection of Aphorisms, because the last one I read, another one of the Little Black Classics, was a real disappointment. I'd previously only seen a little bit of Nietzsche in class, but was curious to what he had to say.

I can only speak for this short edition, which had some nice observation on human nature, which I liked although some seemed a bit random and it would have been nice as some more context could have been provided in this edition. On the other hand, his views on women and gender roles are very outdated, especially for someone seeing through a lot of other things. However, he -of course- was also just a man of his time, but I did deduct a star for it.

September Wrap-Up

So uhm.. September wasn't what I was exptected it to be. I didn't read much at ALL. School drove me nuts and I went to college for the first time in my life so everything was quite overwhelming (also with traveling and stuff) so I was tired for most of the time. But anyways, here are the books I've read:

 - The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown 4/5 ★ review

- Me, Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews 3.5/5 ★ review

- Aphorisms on Love and Hate by Friedrich Nietzsche 4/5 ★ review

- Burmese Days by George Orwell 5/5 ★ review

- The Yellow Wall-Paper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman 2/5 ★ review


I did only read the last 152 of The Da Vinci Code because I read the rest in August. I also reread 270 pages of the last Harry Potter book. My favorite read this month was definitely Burmese Days!


Because I was tired for most of the time I did watch a lot of tv shows:

- Gilmore Girls S03E08 - S03E022 (I rewatched that)

- Great Expectation BBC mini series S01E02 - S01E03

- Orphan Black S02E01-S02E10 (so the entire season 2 and OMG!)

- New Girl s01e01 - S01E20


And I've also watched the episodes of these shows when they were airing (so they came onces a week):

- America's Next Top Model s22e05 - S22E08

- Expeditie Robinson (it's a Dutch tv show!) S16E01 - S16E04

- Nashville S04E01

- The Big Bang Theory S09E01


It's still not that much compared to August, but still haha.


What is your favorite read of September?

Review: Aphorisms on Love and Hate by Friedrich Nietzsche (Penguin Little Black Classic #5)
Little Black Classics Aphorisms On Love and Hate - Friedrich Nietzsche

Goodreads summary:

'We must learn to love, learn to be kind, and this from our earliest youth ... Likewise, hatred must be learned and nurtured, if one wishes to become a proficient hater'

This volume contains a selection of Nietzsche's brilliant and challenging aphorisms, examining the pleasures of revenge, the falsity of pity, and the incompatibility of marriage with the philosophical life.


My opinion:

I really liked his opinion on certain topics but I don't like this edition so much. I wish they would have explain just a few subjects and not executed in pointless bullet points. Some of his opinions only got one sentence. Even tough I didn't like this edition, it still made me excited to read more of his work. The Portable Nietzsche is listed on the Rory Gilmore reading challenge and I planned to read that one at some point, but because I got introduced by his works it made me even more interested in picking it up.


Have you read something of his works?

Little Black Classics Aphorisms On Love and Hate
Little Black Classics Aphorisms On Love and Hate - Friedrich Nietzsche A collection of the German Philosopher Nietzche's thoughts on love, the human condition, feelings and marriage, set in short, devourable segments.

This was a marvellous collection. I swept through this as if my life dependended upon it: and perhaps it does.

There are segments which are truer than others, and some which are obviously products of the time Nietzche was writing in. It seemed a confusing batch at times, too, for I'm not sure Nietzche really, truly believed all he was writing, as hypocrisy was often rife within. It is quotable and will provide conversions aplenty, though perhaps we should forgive a man from a different time his views on women, paradoxical as they were.
