Is Nietzsche a good read to help inspire you to do something great with your life?
no, his ideas are likely to act as a poison, alienating you from others while given you a false sense of worth.
but do read him. though only if you're truly curious so you can read him away by exploring others ideas.

>Peace, peace! he is not dead, he doth not sleep,
> He hath awaken'd from the dream of life;
> 'Tis we, who lost in stormy visions, keep
> With phantoms an unprofitable strife,
> And in mad trance, strike with our spirit's knife
> Invulnerable nothings. We decay
> Like corpses in a charnel; fear and grief
> Convulse us and consume us day by day,
>And cold hopes swarm like worms within our living clay.

Do you know anyone else whose /lit/ irl, or are you the only one in your life besides your professor who knows his shit? Are your classmates passionate about their major, or are they only quasi interested because their parents made them go and it was their only tolerable option?
I am out of college and I know 3 other people in my entire circle of collected acquaintances and family who's reading habits I respect. One of them is a partial in that I respect her for reading 300+ books a year, mostly non-fiction, but typical female pop tastes in literature, one is a woman who is undeniably /lit/ , and another is a well read hipster that spends most of his time in poetry.
Did anyone else catch the spirit to live after reading this book?
I just Fuking typed all this but 4chan said no. So I will give a shortened version. I have to pick 5 different myths, each form a different chapter. I read 4 chapters and have 2 different myths picked out. Where should I go for the remaining 3 myths
Sorry. I'm never going to post on here again.
