Great Things

“A statesman who builds for them another Tower of Babel, some monstrosity of empire and power, they call “great”—what does it matter if we, more cautious and reserved than they, persist in the old belief that it is the great idea alone which can bestow greatness on a deed or a cause.”
Friedrich Nietzche, Beyond Good and Evil
