About Fredrick the Great his son 

" He saw his son lapse into the atheism, the espirit, the pleasure
seeking frivolity of ingenious Frenchman - he saw in the background the
the great blood sucker,spider skepticism, he suspected the incurable
wretchedness of a heart which is no longer hard enough for evil or for
good, of a broken will which no longer commands, can no longer command"

"but in the meantime there grew up in his son that more dangerous and
harder new species of skepticism ... the skepticism of audacious
manliness which is most closely related to genious for war and conquest"

Section 209 , We Scholars (Beyond Good and Evil).
