How can someone from so far back in the past still be so ahead of his time? Truly a book for artists, inventors, creators and all those interested in building a better future for this world. This quote especially stuck out to me:

"There, where the state ceaseth, pray look thither my brethren. Do ye not see it, the rainbow and bridge of the superman?"

Sometimes I cry from the pure beauty of his philosophy, especially the prologue, "The New idol" and "The way of the creating one". This book freed my soul and rejuvenated my spirit. I don't think we can ever be grateful enough to this guy, and the legions of geniuses he inspired. He's still from a distant future that calls out to us in the present.
