Friedrich Nietzsche: First Impressions

Painting of Nietzsche by Edvard Munch

The Greek knew and felt the terror and horror of existence. That he might endure this terror at all, he had to interpose between himself and life the radiant birth of the Olympians. That overwhelming dismay in the face of the titanic powers of nature… all this was again and again overcome by the Greeks with the aid of the Olympian middle world of art. (48)
