Nay, unless my Algebra deceive me, Unity itself divided by Zero will give Infinity. Make thy claim of wages a zero, then; thou hast the world under thy feet. Well did the Wisest of our time write : ' It is only with Renunciation (Entsageri) that Life, properly speaking, can be said to begin.
Side 117 - Es leuchtet mir ein, I see a glimpse of it!" cries he elsewhere: "there is in man a HIGHER than Love of Happiness: he can do without Happiness, and instead thereof find Blessedness!
Side 194 - In all epochs of the world's history, we shall find the Great Man to have been the indispensable saviour of his epoch ; — the lightning, without which the fuel never would have burnt. The History of the World, I said already, was the Biography of Great Men.

Side 33 - In Being's floods, in Action's storm, I walk and work, above, beneath, Work and weave in endless motion ! Birth and Death, An infinite ocean ; A seizing and giving . The fire of Living : "fix thus at the roaring Loom of Time I ply, And weave for God the Garment thou seest Him by.
Side 103 - Indignation and Defiance, in a psychological point of view, be fitly called. The Everlasting No had said : ' Behold, thou art fatherless, outcast, and the Universe is mine (the Devil's) ; ' to which my whole Me now made answer : ' / am not thine, but Free, and forever hate thee !
