Bread | 9 comments Hi, I was wondering if someone could fix this quote: https://www.goodreads.com/quotes/9750...

It should say "Spinoza and Nietzsche", not "Spinoza or Nietzsche"

Thanks!

Gene Hi Bread,

The link you provided is for a different quote.

Ah, my bad. I've edited the original post with the correct link.

Also the quote I've linked above should probably be attributed to this version of The Odyssey: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...

There appears to be a separate entry for a different edition of The Odyssey, which is what the quote is attributed to, rather than the main entry, although its probably not a big deal.

It should be attributed to this one:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...

As opposed to this: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4...
