it was amazing

Probably my favorite book by Nietzsche excluding Thus Spoke Zarathustra. If you love aphorisms that pack a punch then this will be right up your alley. Not a laborious read like some "treatise" philosophy, but witty, controversial, eloquent, and brutally honest.
My favorite aphorism - "Life consists of rare individual moments of the highest significance and countless intervals in which at best the phantoms of those moments hover over us. Love, spring, a beautiful melody, the mountains, the moon, the sea - they speak truly to our heart only once: if they ever do in fact find speech. For many people never experience these moments at all but are themselves intervals and pauses in the symphony of real life." (#586) So beautiful! Should be studied alongside Shakespeare. Breathtaking.
