what's the most embarrassing thing you've read on public transit? i just finished Nietzsche in 90 Minutes myself. It was quite edifying, and about the level I was hoping to read. Some lovely quotes the author excerpted from Human, All Too Human below:

"The fantasist denies reality to himself, the liar does so only to others."

"The mother of excess is not joy but joylessness."

"All poets and writers enamored of the superlative want to do more than they can."

"A witticism is an epigram on the death of a feeling."

oh my gosh, did i get pretentious just now? not a chance. because i got these quotes from Nietzsche in 90 Minutes. and i'm not afraid to tell you that.
