Friedrich Nietzsche – The bridge you must build over the river of life

Share this quote:
Friedrich NietzscheNo one can build you the bridge on which you, and only you, must cross the river of life. There may be countless trails and bridges and demigods who would gladly carry you across; but only at the price of pawning and forgoing yourself. There is one path in the world that none can walk but you. Where does it lead? Don’t ask, walk!

Friedrich Nietzsche   (Oct 15, 1844-Aug 25, 1900)
