"But I came close to you, and the day dawned on me, and now it dawns on you too; the moon’s love has come to an end. Look there! Caught and pale he stands there, confronted by the dawn. For already she approaches, glowing; her love for the earth approaches. All solar love is innocence and creative longing. Look there: how she approaches impatiently over the sea. Do you not feel the thirst and the hot breath of her love? She would suck at the sea and drink its depth into her heights; and the sea’s desire rises toward her with a thousand breasts. It wants to be kissed and sucked by the thirst of the sun; it wants to become air and height and a footpath of light, and itself light. Like the sun I love life and all deep seas. And this is what perceptive knowledge means to me: all that is deep shall rise up to my heights."
Friedrich Nietzsche, from
Thus Spoke Zarathustra
