A Bridge

Art by Roland Winkhart

Man is a rope, fastened between animal and superman - a rope over an abyss.
A dangerous going-across, a dangerous wayfaring, a dangerous looking-back, a dangerous shuddering and staying-still.
What is great in man is that he is a bridge and not a goal; what can be loved in man is that he is a going-across and a down-going.
I love those who do not know how to live except their lives be a down-going, for they are those who are going across.
- Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra
