The Birth of Tragedy 1910 | Friedrich Nietzsche

…“Without myth, however, every culture loses its healthy creative natural power: it is only a horizon encompassed with myth that rounds off to unity a social movement.”

…“What does our great historical hunger signify, our clutching about us of countless cultures, our consuming desire for knowledge, if not the loss of myth, of a mythic home, the mythic womb?”

…“… all life rests on appearance, art, illusion, optics, the need for perspective and for error…”

…“Knowledge kills action, for action requires a state of being in which we are covered with the veil of illusion.”

…“Around the hero everything becomes a tragedy; around the demigod everything becomes a satyr-play; and around God everything becomes — what? perhaps a ‘world’?”

…“There is nothing more terrible than a class of barbaric slaves who have learned to regarded their existence as an injustice, and now prepare to avenge, not only themselves, but all generations.”
