“Strange! I am dominated at every moment by the thought that my history is not only a personal one, that I am doing something for many people when I live like this and work on and write about myself this way. It is always as if I were a multiplicity, which I address in intimate, serious, and comforting terms.”
(Nietzsche, unpublished note, 1880)
– Five years have past by, since I post for the first time, and it has been a blissful experience that I have shared with many of you, loyal viewers.
I would like to say – Thank you so much, all of you, for still being there, for your support and for all the kind words you left here!! ! (…smiling…) –
“Everything that I have known
You’ll write to me to remind
Me of, and likewise I shall do
The whole past I’ll recount to you”
(Friedrich Hölderlin, Selected Poems and Fragments)
“In the union of nature, loyalty is no dream!
We part only to be more intimately at one, more divinely at peace with all, with each other.
We die so as to live.”
(Friedrich Hölderlin, Hyperion)
“I think we all have our own personality, unique and distinctive, and at the same time, I think that our own unique and distinctive personality blends with the wind, with the footsteps in the street, with the noises around the corner, and with the silence of memory, which is the great producer of ghosts.”
“There has fallen a splended tear
From the passion-flower at the gate.
She is coming, my dove, my dear
She is coming, my life, my fate.”
(Alfred Tennyson, Maud)
