“I teach you the Superman. Man is something that should be overcome. What have you done to overcome him? All creatures hitherto have created something beyond themselves: and do you want to be the ebb of the great tide, and return to the animals rather than overcome man? What is the ape to men? A laughing stock or a painful embarrassment. And just so shall man be to the Superman: a laughing stock or a painful embarrassment”. ~Nietzsche – Thus Spoke Zarathustra
That is how I would describe Steve Jobs. The Man who always strives to overcome himself, to overcome its limitations. The Man who inspires by simply being himself, and doing what he does. A Man that simply cannot be overshadowed. The Man whose creations do not only inspire by the virtue of their creation but by awe to their potential. The Super-Man…
I could not have written it better:
“I love him who lives in order to know, and seeks to know in order that the Superman may hereafter live. Thus seeks he his own down-going. I love him who labors and invents, that he may build the house for the Superman, and prepare for him earth, animal, and plant: for thus seeks he his own down-going”. ~Nietzsche
I love him… I will miss him… Rest in peace!
“In truth, without deceit, certain and most veritable”
