Famous quotes containing the word crux:

    This is the crux of the moral pessimists: if they really wanted to promote their neighbor’s redemption, then they would have to resolve themselves to spoiling existence for him, and thus to being his misfortune; out of pity, they would have to—become evil!
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
