THUS SPAKE ZARATHUSTRA
Friedrich Nietzsche (1891) (translated by Thomas Common; see complete text)

Photo 1 (id: 023_1_001)

023_1_003.jpg

Slow is the experience of all deep fountains: long have they to wait until they know what hath fallen into their depths.

Photo 2 (id: 023_1_003)

023_2_001.jpg

Away from the market-place and from fame taketh place all that is great: away from the market-Place and from fame have ever dwelt the devisers of new values.

Photo 3 (id: 023_2_001)

023_2_002.jpg

Flee, my friend, into thy solitude: I see thee stung all over by the poisonous flies. Flee thither, where a rough, strong breeze bloweth!

Photo 4 (id: 023_2_002)

023_2_003.jpg

Flee into thy solitude! Thou hast lived too closely to the small and the pitiable. Flee from their invisible vengeance! Towards thee they have nothing but vengeance.

Photo 5 (id: 023_2_003)

023_2_004.jpg

Raise no longer an arm against them! Innumerable are they, and it is not thy lot to be a fly-flap.

Photo 6 (id: 023_2_004)

023_2_005.jpg

Innumerable are the small and pitiable ones; and of many a proud structure, rain-drops and weeds have been the ruin.

Photo 7 (id: 023_2_005)

023_3_001.jpg

Thou art not stone; but already hast thou become hollow by the numerous drops. Thou wilt yet break and burst by the numerous drops.

Photo 8 (id: 023_3_001)

023_3_005.jpg

Exhausted I see thee, by poisonous flies; bleeding I see thee, and torn at a hundred spots; and thy pride will not even upbraid.

Photo 9 (id: 023_3_005)

023_4_003.jpg

Blood they would have from thee in all innocence; blood their bloodless souls crave for- and they sting, therefore, in all innocence.

Photo 10 (id: 023_4_003)

023_5_002.jpg

But thou, profound one, thou sufferest too profoundly even from small wounds; and ere thou hadst recovered, the same poison-worm crawled over thy hand.

Photo 11 (id: 023_5_002)

023_5_003.jpg

Too proud art thou to kill these sweet-tooths. But take care lest it be thy fate to suffer all their poisonous injustice!

Photo 12 (id: 023_5_003)

023_5_005.jpg

They buzz around thee also with their praise: obtrusiveness is their praise. They want to be close to thy skin and thy blood.

Photo 13 (id: 023_5_005)

023_6_003.jpg

They flatter thee, as one flattereth a God or devil; they whimper before thee, as before a God or devil; What doth it come to! Flatterers are they, and whimperers, and nothing more.

Photo 14 (id: 023_6_003)

023_6_004.jpg

Often, also, do they show themselves to thee as amiable ones. But that hath ever been the prudence of the cowardly. Yea! the cowardly are wise!
