O man! Take heed!What saith deep midnight's voice indeed?I slept my sleep--,From deepest dream I've woke, and plead: The world is deep, And deeper than the day could read.Deep is its woe--,Joy--deeper still than grief can be:Woe saith: Hence! Go!But joys all want eternity,Want deep, profound eternity!
— Friedrich Nietzsche
