“As in the realm of the stars it is sometimes two suns which determine the course of a planet, as in certain cases suns of differing colour shine on a single planet now with a red light, now with a green light, and sometimes striking it at the same time and flooding it with many colours: so we modern men are, thanks to the complicated mechanism of our ‘starry firmament,’ determined by differing moralities; our actions shine alternately in differing colours, they are seldom unequivocal—and there are cases enough in which we perform many-coloured action.”
Friedrich Nietzsche, Beyond Good and Evil
