Whether we immoralists do injury to virtue? – Just as little as Anarchists do to princes. It is only since princes have been wounded by shots that they sit firmly on their thrones again. Moral: We must wound morality by our shots.
– Friedrich Nietzsche, Twilight of the Idols
But he lived after the French Revolution, but maybe he doesn’t think they count? Would he amend that now?
The disillusioned speaks. – I sought for great men; I never found aught but the apes of their ideal.
Maybe too true of many, but not all.
