This is more than a book about love, it’s a book about life. It is more than how to love another because first one must learn to love oneself. Only when loving kindness, compassion, joy and equanimity can work in harmony can true love flourish.

The Portable Nietzsche (Viking Portable Library) Cover Image

Published: Penguin Books - January 27th, 1977

Often misunderstood and branded as controversial due to misinterpretation, the body of work Friedrich Nietzche left us is in the end one that is dynamic, and humanistic in nature. This volume conveniently brigs most of Nietzsche’s works together in a concise and enriching manner. I always come back to it.
