Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900):
"What does not kill him, makes him stronger."
"Was ihn nicht umbringt, macht ihn stärker."
This quote comes from - Friedrich Nietzsche's (1844-1900) last original book - Ecce Homo: How One Becomes What One Is (German: Ecce homo: Wie man wird, was man ist). Although Ecce Homo: was written in 1888, it was not published until 1908, a period of 8 years after Nietzsche's death. Nietzsche was a very influential 19th century philosopher and philologist from Germany, whose written works are well worth reading.
So why is ALCHEssMIST quoting Nietzsche?
Well, ALCHEssMIST wishes to give a heartfelt thanks to the "unknown agent(s)" [;^)] who recently created some problems with this site. As a result, ALCHEssMIST has learned a great deal about that which he did not understand before. Those readers who check this blog from time-to-time will note some changes. Some of these changes are as a direct result of the problems alluded to above. Other changes on this site reflect the multidimensional character that is ALCHEssMIST.
