The Italian Nietzsche (24)
Precisely because of nothingness I keep acting and working and existing. What would be the merit in working for an eternal reward? How much courage would be needed to live, if there were a Providence?
We Mephistophelians love even nothingness: it relaxes us, it attracts us, it gives us the rare elation of disinterested love.
__Giovanni Papini, L'altra metà (1911), 3: Nothingness
