Dante found himself in a dark wood and Whitman said go forth, I myself am good fortune, but Dante’s realization that he was lost and Whitman’s decision to simply go forward are possible only after pausing, looking, and questioning what is.

Nietzsche was a great questioner. He writes, in, “Twilight of the Idols,” or more bluntly, “How to Philosophize With a Hammer,” a series of maxims and arrows, that he was “imprisoned among all sorts of terrible concepts.” From there, he became a wrecking ball, seeking to destroy those concepts so new, better ways could be built.
