“Little or No Love” — Nietzsche on Good and Bad Books

158. Little or no Love. —Every good book is written for a particular reader and men of his stamp, and for that very reason is looked upon unfavourably by all other readers, by the vast majority. Its reputation accordingly rests on a narrow basis and must be built up by degrees.—The mediocre and bad book is mediocre and bad because it seeks to please, and does please, a great number.

—Friedrich Nietzsche, Human, All Too Human, Part II.
