A real man wants two things: danger and play. Therefore he wants woman as the most dangerous plaything.

Nietzsche

A real man wants two things: danger and play. Therefore he wants woman as the most dangerous plaything. Man should be educated for war, and woman for the recreation of the warrior; all else is folly. The warrior does not like all-too-sweet fruit; therefore he likes woman: Even the sweetest woman is bitter…. The happiness of man is: I will. The happiness of woman is: he wills. ‘Behold, just now the world became perfect!’- thus thinks every woman when she obeys out of entire love. And woman must obey and find a depth for her surface. Surface is the disposition of woman: a mobile, stormy film over shallow water. Man’s disposition, however, is deep; his river roars in subterranean caves: woman feels his strength but does not comprehend it…. You are going to women? Do not forget the whip!
