In order to distinguish between Italian and English, I italicized the Italian phrases and put the English in parentheses in normal font. If you have other ideas to improve this page, please share them. 01:23, 7 December 2010 (UTC)

Nietzsche is the source of the "nothing is true" quote.[edit]

"Nothing is true, everything is permitted" is a line that Nietzsche claims in Genealogy of Morals is the motto of the assassin's order.

To wit: Section 24 of the Third Essay: "When the Christian crusaders in the Orient came across that unconquered Order of Assassins, that free-spirited order par excellence, whose lowest ranks lived a life of obedience of the sort no order of monks attained, then they received by some means or other a hint about that symbol and motto, which only the highest ranks kept as their secret, "Nothing is true. Everything is permitted." .

The German: "Als die christlichen Kreuzfahrer im Orient auf jenen unbesiegbaren Assassinen-Orden stiessen, jenen Freigeister-Orden par excellence, dessen unterste Grade in einem Gehorsame lebten, wie einen gleichen kein Mönchsorden erreicht hat, da bekamen sie auf irgend welchem Wege auch einen Wink über jenes Symbol und Kerbholz-Wort, das nur den obersten Graden, als deren Secretum, vorbehalten war: „Nichts ist wahr, Alles ist erlaubt“… " 15:45, 19 July 2011 (UTC)

Wrong explicit editing.[edit]

In the "Go f*** yourself" Italian quotes, "fottere" is the naughty word, but the word before it is edited.
