Though being painfully prosaic in his writings, Nietzsche produced awe-inspiring verses frequently, astounding his readers and followers of a later period. Even today, his concept of the ‘Superman’ is widely discussed among philosophers across the world.

  3. “Distrust all in whom the impulse to punish is powerful”
