: I'm looking for the meaning of "amor fati" and when it was first used and by whom. thanks liz

It literally translates "love of destiny" and it is a central tenet of the writings of Frederich Nietzsche. Since I know virtually nothing about him, or his philosophy, I leave up to more knowledgeabe people to take this further.
