It's Nietzsche!

To quote:

Revaluation of all values

What is good? Everything that heightens the feeling of power in man, the will to power, power itself.

What is bad? Everything that is born of weakness.

What is happiness? The feeling that power is growing, that resistance is overcome.

Not contentedness, but more power; not peace but war; not virture but fitness.

The weak and the failures shall perish: first principles of our love of man. And they shall even be given every possible assistance.

What is more harmful than any vice? Active pity for all the failures and all the weak.

The Antichrist, The Portable Nietzche. Edited/translated by Walter Kaufman, 1954. The Viking Press, Inc., New York.
