I've noticed that the Wiki link doesn't work sometimes because of the order use in the name of the person. Example: Surname, first name and then middle name is not how Wiki lists them. They use First name, middle name, Surname - in that order. Just a note to linkers, to be aware of that situation.

Yeah. We hear so many good words about love in life... Why in the world so much hate?

Context from: "Thus Spake Zarathustra"

Part One--Zarathustra's Discourses-

Discourse VII

Reading and Writing.


" Ye tell me, "Life is hard to bear." But for what purpose should ye have your pride in the morning and your resignation in the evening?

Life is hard to bear: but do not affect to be so delicate! We are all of us fine sumpter asses and assesses.

What have we in common with the rose-bud, which trembleth because a drop of dew hath formed upon it?

It is true we love life; not because we are wont to live, but because we are wont to love.

There is always some madness in love. But there is always, also, some method in madness.

And to me also, who appreciate life, the butterflies, and soap-bubbles, and whatever is like them amongst us, seem most to enjoy happiness.""

German for "to love" is lieben, while leben means "to live" Otherwise, I can see no connection between the two concepts.
