What is short form?

Famous quotes containing the words form and/or short:

    Nihilism as a symptom that the losers have no more consolation: that they destroy in order to be destroyed, that without morality they no longer have any reason to “resign themselves”Mthat they put themselves on the level of the opposite principle and for their part also want power in that they compel the mighty to be their hangmen. This is the European form of Buddhism, renunciation, once all existence has lost its “meaning.”
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    Chess is ruthless: you’ve got to be prepared to kill people.
    —Nigel Short (b. 1965)
