Oh Great star, deep eye of happiness!!!

Oh my soul, I taught you to say 'today' and 'once' and 'formerly', and to dance your round over all here and then and there.
Oh my soul, I washed the petty bashfulness and the nook-virtue from you and persuaded you to stand naked before the eyes of the sun.
Oh my soul, to your soil I gave all wisdom to drink, all new wines and also all old strong wines of wisdom from time immemorial.
Oh my soul, I poured every sun upon and every night and every silence and every longing -then you grew up for me like a grape wine.

Friedrich Nietzsche
