“You want if possible—and there is no madder “if possible”—to abolish suffering; and we?—it really does seem that we would rather increase it and make it worse than it has ever been! Well-being as you understand it—that is no goal, that seems to us an end! A state which soon renders man ludicrous and contemptible—which makes it desirable that he should perish! The discipline of suffering, of great suffering—do you not know that it is this discipline alone which has created every elevation of mankind hitherto?” – Nietzche (Beyond Good And Evil)

“I love to disturb people, because only by disturbing them I can make them think. They have starved thinking for centuries, nobody has been there to disturb them. People have been consoling them, I’m not going to console anybody. Because the more you console them, the more retarded they remain. Disturb them, shock them, hit them hard, give them a challenge. That challenge will bring their capacities to the climax.” – OSHO
