What does the deep midnight declare?
“I was asleep—
From a deep dream I woke and swear:
The world is deep,
Deeper than day had been aware.
Deep is its woe;
Joy—deeper yet than agony:
Woe implores: Go!
But all joy wants eternity—
Wants deep, wants deep eternity.”"
— Thus Spoke Zarathrusta, Friedrich Nietzsche (Translated by Walter Kaufmann)
— Neil Gaiman, “The Sandman, Vol. 5: A Game of You” (via quoted-books)
