From Paris Requiem by Lisa Appignanesi (2001):

You’ve heard all Elinor’s remarks about suicide. She talks of little else. She, with all her advantages. Yesterday, she made me lose my temper. I should tell you that I rarely lose my temper. I ended up by quoting a rather scurrilous German philosopher at her. Oh yes, I have German…

I said to her that the thought of suicide is a great consolation. By means of it one can get through many a bad night. She didn’t like that. She didn’t like it one bit.

From Nietzsche, Beyond Good and Evil
