Only unexpected gifts make life worth living. What is life without such gifts? A burden, perhaps. But the existence of such moments which are totally unforseeable, make life boundlessly rich. If my lonely musings below are able to give anyone such unexpected happiness then I think my effort has been rewarded.
So, never expect, just live.
Thus Spoke Zarathustra
I am reading Nietzsche’s Thus Spoke Zarathustra. She is certainly more than a book. She is more like an enigma. Anyone who dares to read her earnestly can experience a powerful spell cast by her mysterious aphorisms. The first thing which I noticed about her is that this book can’t be read indoors just because she is not just a thing to be read. Rather, she has a life of her own and one can only be a friend or enemy of her. And some solitary soul like mine can also fall in love with her. Yes, I am indeed in love with her. And our rendezvous only takes place whenever I am under the open sky where my eyes converse with widest horizons and breezes gently play with my limbs. Where birds are singing and flowers are blooming with the greatest joy. Nothing more can be said for true Love always loves to be silent. Here is the quote which is closest to my heart:
Brave, unconcerned, mocking, violent- that’s what wisdom wants us to be; she is a woman, and always loves only a warrior.
