I recognise my destiny, said he at last, sadly. Well! I am ready. Now hath my last lonesomeness begun.
Ah, this sombre, sad sea, below me! Ah, this sombre nocturnal vexation! Ah, fate and sea! To you must I now GO DOWN!
Before my highest mountain do I stand, and before my longest wandering: therefore must I first go deeper down than I ever ascended:
–Deeper down into pain than I ever ascended, even into its darkest flood! So willeth my fate. Well! I am ready.
Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra
