I mean that it will be struck out of the history of the true liberation of life. Lessingthe most honest of theoretical men, dared to say that he took greater delight in the quest for truth than in the truth itself.
If a painless death, leaving behind beautiful progeny, is the sign of a happy natural state, then the endings of the other arts show us the example of just such a happy natural state: The age of Socratic man is past: Because of the way that myth takes it for granted that miracles are always happening, the waking life of a mythically inspired people — the ancient Greeks, for instance — more closely resembles a dream than it does the waking world of a scientifically disenchanted thinker.
Zarathustra … has charmed the anti-Semites; there is a special anti-Semitic interpretation of it that made me laugh very much.
And while he aims for the greatest possible freedom from pain, the intuitive man, standing in the midst of a culture, already reaps from his intuition a harvest of continually inflowing illumination, cheer, and redemption — in addition to obtaining a defense against misfortune.
We still do not yet know where the drive for truth comes from. I want to dream on! This drive continually confuses the conceptual categories and cells by bringing forward new transferences, metaphors, and metonymies.

It is thus with all guilt. At bottom, what the investigator of such truths is seeking is only the metamorphosis of the world into man.
They suffer pain just as we humans suffer pain. I have recently been persecuted with letters and Anti-Semitic Correspondence Sheets. I hardly knew Spinoza: Only God knows how many innocent dogs have been sentenced to death, being punished with the loss of their own lives, paying for the irresponsibility or carelessness of their human owners, who often trained them to be vicious and then neglect to protect them from the hazards of their learned "attack skills"!
