"I teach you the Ubermensche. Man is something that is to be surpassed. What have ye done to surpass man? All beings hitherto have created something beyond themselves: and ye want to be the ebb of that great tide, and would rather go back to the beast than surpass man? What is the ape to man? A laughing-stock, a thing of shame. And just the same shall man be to the Ubermensche: a laughing-stock, a thing of shame.

Lo, I teach you the Ubermensche! The Ubermensche is the meaning of the earth...

Once the soul looked contemptuously on the body, and then that contempt was the supreme thing: -- the soul wished the body meagre, ghastly and famished. Thus it sought to escape from the body and the earth...

But ye, also, my brethren, tell me: What doth your body say about your soul? Is your soul not poverty and pollution and wretched self-complacency? Veriyl, a polluted stream is man. One must be a sea, to receive a polluted stream without becoming impure. Lo, I teach you the Ubermensche: he is that sea; in him can your great contempt be submerged...

...It is not your sin -- it is your self-satisfaction that crieth unto heaven; your very sparingness in sin crieth unto heaven! Where is the lightening to lick you with its tongue? Where is the frenzy with which ye should be inoculated?

Lo, I teach you the Ubermensche: he is that lightening, he is that frenzy"--

...When Zarathustra had thus spoken, one of the people called out: "Whe have now heard enough of the rope-dancer; it is time now for us to see him!"

Thus Spake Zarathustra by Friedrich Nietzsche

...perhaps the crowd may get more than what they've bargained for.
