The Italian Nietzsche (18)

So, this book should be precisely as it is: odd and bizarre like its subject matter. Dealing crazily with craziness would be too consistent, it wouldn't be really crazy. But being rationally busy about craziness, and saying very sensible things on nothingness are examples of that necessary contradiction that is the truest and most tragic law of thought.

__Giovanni Papini, L'altra metà (1911), 2: The Other Half
