Willing Liberates

by ds1844

“The will to power is essentially creative and giving: it does not aspire, it does not seek, it does not desire, above all it does not desire power. It gives: power is something inexpressible in the will (something mobile, variable, plastic); power is in the will as “the bestowing virtue”, through power the will itself bestows sense and value.” Gilles Deleuze, Nietzsche and Philosophy, 85.

by ds1844

“There is something in the Nietzschean notion of value to explode all recognized, established values, something to create, in a state of permanent creation, new things that escape all recognition and every establishment. There you have a positive getting back to Nietzsche, how to philosophize with a hammer: never what is known, but a great destruction of the known, for the creation of the unknown.” Gilles Deleuze, Desert Islands, 136.
