BEYOND GOOD AND EVIL by friedrich nietzsche

I totally fell off with all my reading, and I decided today that it's time to hop back on.
I've been a fan of Nietzsche's philosophies ever since I was first taught about them, and every time I pick up something he wrote I feel inspired all over again.
I'm reading a chapter in his book right now and here is a quote that really stuck with me. I'm gona try and post more as I keep up my reading.

"it is 'nature' therein which teaches to hate the 'laisser-aller', the too great freedom, and implants the need for limited horizons, for immediate duties - it teaches the 'narrowing of perspectives', and thus, in a certain sense, that stupidity is a condition of life and development."
