“You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.”
I am a fan of Philosophy, Poetry and most literature.
It was once pointed out that all of my favorite authors exhibited either a mental problem or addiction of some kind. Nietzsche is not excluded from this interesting point. We all have our addictions, some are worse than others and I will admit to having a few (All legal mind you). Whether I am mental or not, I will leave that to you. I will not argue the fact I think differently or admire those that also think differently.
Let us get back to the main topic.. (I am great at going off topic)
I would love to hear some of your (anyone who happens to be reading this) representations of this quote.
What do you think it means?
Do you agree?
I believe most things can be taken in several ways. What the author was originally trying to say may not be what you get from it. I personally think it exhibits many truths and I will list a few.
We will most likely never agree on everything
You have your beliefs, I have mine..
I can attempt to prove mine and so can you, but we could argue our individual cases forever. If we can't truly prove each other wrong, why not say the truth doesn't exist?
The Truth is an opinion
Following my previous point, it isn't hard for me to say that the truth in many cases could always be seen as an opinion. In many cases the popular opinion acts as the truth.
If we all said the sky was pink and everything we thought was blue was instantly pink because we all believe it to be so.. who will argue?
Everything we believe could probably be a direct effect of the influences upon ours lives.
Maybe Nietzsche was just pointing out that we will never agree or that we should just maintain our own opinions without trying to make them facts.
I could probably agree with almost any representation of this quote, as it could be referring to nothing and everything, and I am quite open minded.
Please give me your outlook on it... I've already admitted to thinking differently so if you see it as something totally different or don't agree with me SAY SO!
