Against Remorse

Written by Friedrich Nietzsche

Against Remorse, -- A thinker sees his own actions as experiments and questions – as attempts to find out something.  Success and failure are for him answers above all.  To be annoyed or feel remorse because something goes wrong---that he leaves to those who act because they have received orders and who have to reckon with a beating when his lordship is not satisfied with the result. -- The Gay Science
