Nietzche got lots of things wrong. So you really have to quote selectively
from him. Quoting him on the abyss of course doesn't imply you agree with
his views on women. (Yes, I saw your smiley!) Nietzsche himself presumably
would welcome being improved upon:

"One repays a teacher badly if one always remains a pupil only. Why do you
not pluck at my wreath?"
