Quotes containing the word decadence


1. It is a self-deception of philosophers and moralists to imagine that they escape decadence by opposing it. That is beyond their will; and, however little they acknowledge it, one later discovers that they were among the most powerful promoters of decadence.
- Friedrich Nietzsche, The Will to Power
