The quote is: "The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe"

I would like to find out which book this quote has been taken from.

Thanks

It's in Nietzsche's Thus Spoke Zarathustra. But this particular quote is not there and may be a rewording of Nietzsche speaking about not becoming one of the "herd": But I need living companions, who will follow me because they want to follow themselves and to the place where I will. A light hath dawned upon me. Not to the people is Zarathustra to speak, but to companions! Zarathustra shall not be the herd
herdsman and hound! (Prologue 17)
