Friedrich Nietzsche – Cultivating Beauty/Closing Quote

http-::melissaotterbein.files.wordpress.com:2013:01:nietzsche

HOPING TO USE AS CLOSING QUOTE FOR MY BOOK “CULTIVATING BEAUTY”:

By Friedrich Nietzsche, from “The Birth of Tragedy, Out of the Spirit of Music”:

“Either under the influence of the narcotic draught, of which the songs of all primitive men and peoples speak, or with the potent coming of spring that penetrates all nature with joy, these Dionysian emotions awake, and as they grow in intensity everything subjective vanishes into complete self-forgetfulness.  There are some who, from obtuseness or lack of experience, turn away from such phenomena as from ‘folk-diseases’, with contempt or pity born of the consciousness of their own ‘healthy-mindedness’.  But of course such poor wretches have no idea how corpselike and ghostly their so-called ‘healthy-mindedness’ looks when the glowing life of the Dionysian revelers roars past them.”
