“Again and again I am brought up against it, and again and again I resist it: I dont want to believe it, even though it is almost palpable: the vast majority lack an intellectual conscience; indeed, it often seems to me that to demand such a thing is to be in the most populous cities as solitary as in the desert.”
—Friedrich Nietzsche (18441900)
“For she has made me the laily worm
That lies at the fit o the tree,
An my sister Masery shes made
