"It is said of Nietzsche, after breaking with Lou, entered into a final solitude, walked at night in the mountains that dominate the Gulf of Genoa and lit immense fires there that he watched smolder. I've often thought of these fires and their gleam has danced behind my entire intellectual life. So even though I've sometimes been unjust toward certain thoughts and certain men whom I've met in this century, it is because I've unwillingly put them in front of these fires and they were promptly reduced to ashes." -Albert Camus, Notebooks: 1951-1959
