VI - The Lovers
She seizes him and kisses him,
And with impudent face she says to him:
I had to offer sacrifices,
And today I have paid my vows.
So now I have come out to meet you.
To seek you eagerly, and I have found you.
(Proverbs vii. 13-15)
I, Wisdom, dwell in prudence,
And I possess knowledge and discretion. . .
I love those who love me.
And those who seek me find me.
(Proverbs viii, 12, 17)
Set me as a seal upon your heart.
As a ring upon your arm;
For love is strong as death. . .
Its flashes are flashes of fire,
A flame of the Eternal.
(Song of Songs viii, 6-7)
"I have found you"
"Those who seek me find me?"
"who is more me than I myself am"
"0 man! Take heed!
What saith deep Midnight, indeed?
I lay asleep, asleep —
I waked from my deep dream —
The world is deep,
And deeper than ever day may deem.
Deep is its woe-
Joy—deeper yet than woe is she:
Saith woe: Hence, go!
Yet Joy would have Eternity-
Profound, profound Eternity!"
(Friedrich Nietzsche. Thus Spake Zarathustra)
