Philosopher
    (October 15, 1844-August 25, 1900)
    Wrote 'Beyond Good and Evil,' 'The Will to Power,' 'Thus Spake Zarathustra,' 'The Anti-Christ,' 'Twilight of the Idols or How to Philosophize With a Hammer,' 'Ecce Homo' and 'On the Genealogy of Morals'
    He was obsessed with aesthetics and composed music, but no one really pays attention to it anymore.
    He was named after King Friedrich Wilhelm IV and even shares a birthday with him.
    Although he was critical of Christianity, his own grandfather was a famous Protestant theologian.
    When he was 23, he injured himself jumping onto a saddle and spent the rest of his life in poor health.
    He suffered from syphilis.
    He despised Socrates.
    Ayn Rand was a big fan of his.
    His works are incredibly sardonic and he often said things just to shock.
    He is often quoted out of context.
    Thanks to his sister, Elizabeth, his works were distorted by the Nazis.
    He broke off his friendship with Richard Wagner because of Wagner's anti-Semitism.
    His philosophy preached creativity and living one's current life to its fullest, rather than living in preparation of a non-existent afterlife.
    He suffered a nervous breakdown after witnessing a horse being cruelly beaten.
    Although he was highly critical of modern Christianity, he was a great admirer of Jesus, believing that he typified many of the tendencies of the ideal man.
    He was not anti-Semitic and the belief that his works could justify Nazi ideology is ludicrous.
    He was one of the leading historians of philosophy in his day.
    He renounced his Prussian citizenship and spent a decade wandering through Southern and Western Europe.
    He had an impressive moustache!
