Newsletter: Never heard anything more divine

This is a rather spontaneous Newsletter; I found a little text that I copied some months ago during a previous project in my notebook, and I thought about sharing it with you. Hope it gives you a little bit of food for thought!

“What if a demon were to creep after you one night, in your loneliest loneliness, and say, ‘This life which you live must be lived by you once again and innumerable times more; and every pain and joy and thought and sigh must come again to you, all in the same sequence. The eternal hourglass will again and again be turned and you with it, dust of the dust!’

Would you throw yourself down and gnash your teeth and curse that demon?

Or would you answer, ‘Never have I heard anything more divine’? ”

(Friedrich Nietzsche)
