Nietzsche on Suffering

The Gay Science 338

When people try to benefit someone in distress they aren't interested in the real intricacies of their distress or the necessity of it. Suffering and displeasure aren't evil, hateful, and worthy of extinction. Happiness and unhappiness are twins that grow up together. There are thousands of ways to lose our own way (which may be hard and demanding) in order to come to the assistance of our neighbour and all are considered highly moral. War is for some a detour to suicide but one with a good conscience. Live in ignorance about what seems most important to your age. Share not suffering but joy.
