"At the beginning of the book [Twilight of the Idols] Nietzsche lists forty-two separate maxims, one of which is, What doesn’t kill me, makes me stronger. He makes it clear that this isn’t a new concept, quoting from the Roman poet Aulus Furius Antias ‘spirits increase, vigor grows through a wound’ to illustrate his point."
