Working Wisdom: quote about misalignment

Friedrich Nietzsche once said: “That which does not kill us makes us stronger.”

Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche (15 October 1844 – 25 August 1900) was a German philosopher, cultural critic, composer, poet, philologist and Latin and Greek scholar whose work has exerted a profound influence on Western philosophy and modern intellectual history. This saying comes from the ‘Maxims and Arrows’ section of Nietzsche’s book, Twilight of the Idols, or, How to Philosophize with a Hammer (1888-1889) in which he criticizes German culture of the day as unsophisticated and nihilistic. This phrase is frequently used in life and business to express optimism and determination in the face of adversity.
