“Dangerous Books” — Nietzsche

From Friedrich Nietzsche, Human, All Too Human, Part II:

58. Dangerous Books. —A man says: “Judging from my own case, I find that this book is harmful.” Let him but wait, and perhaps one day he will confess that the book did him a great service by thrusting forward and bringing to light the hidden disease of his soul.—Altered opinions alter not at all (or very little) the character of a man: but they illuminate individual facets of his personality, which hitherto, in another constellation of opinions, had remained dark and unrecognisable.

    We can always judge what we believe is best for ourselves but being knowledgeable is the door way to making better choices.
