A Prescription

“Be more stupid and you will feel better” — such was Professor Immermann’s prescription for the ailments of his most brilliant patient, Friedrich Nietzsche.
Quoted by Curtis Cate, Friedrich Nietzsche (Woodstock & New York: The Overlook Press, 2005), p.184 (from Briefwechsel, II/4., p.358, (ed. W. de Gruyter), Erwin Rohde to Friedrich Nietzsche, 23rd December 1873.).
