Aphorism 108:
New struggles. —AFTER BUDDHA WAS DEAD, HIS SHADOW WAS STILL SHOWN FOR CENTURIES IN A CAVE-A TREMENDOUS, GRUESOME SHADOW. GOD IS DEAD; BUT GIVEN THE WAY OF MEN,
THERE MAY STILL BE CAVES FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS IN WHICH HIS SHADOW WILL BE SHOWN. -AND W E-W ILL STILL HAVETO VANQUISH HIS SHADOW TOO.
2. APHORISM 339:
VITA FEMINA. — Not even all knowledge and all good will suffice for seeing the ultimate beauties of a work; ti requires the rarest of lucky accidents for the clouds that veil the peaks to lift for us momentarily and for the sun to shine on them. Not only must we stand in just the right spot to see this, but our own soul, too, must itself have pulled the veil from its heights and must have been in need of some external expression and parable, as if it needed a hold in order to retain control of itself. Butso rarely does all of this coincide that I am inclined to believe that the highest peaks of everything good, be it work, deed, humanity, or nature, have so far remained hidden and covered from the majority and even from the best. But what does unveil itself for us unveils itself for us only once! The Greeks , to be sure, prayed: ‘Everything beautiful twice and thrice!’ Indeed, they had good reason to summon the gods, for ungodly reality gives us the beautiful things but nevertheless poor, very poor in beautiful moments and in the unveilings of those things. But perhaps that is the strongest magic of life: it is covered by a veil of beautiful possibilities, woven with threads of god- promising, resisting, bashful, mocking, compassionate,and seductivbcie. Yes,life is a woman!
