Fun fact: I had this quote on my wall for a year and never knew that Nietzche was the one who said it til I was working on this post.
I love this quote because it is a perfect reminder that no matter what you do in life people are going to criticize you. There will always be people who have nothing better to do than attempt to drag others down. But in order for anyone to even attempt to pull you down, they must already be below you, and there is absolutely no reason for you to allow them to drag you down with them.
Never let anyone clip your wings simply because they never found their own. The fact that they spend so much time focusing on and criticizing others probably has a lot to do with the reason they never learned to fly themselves; don't let them stop you from soaring. Be the majestic, badass dragon you were meant to be. Leave the angry, flightless chickens to fight among themselves.
