„So far no one had had enough courage and intelligence to reveal me to my dear Germans.“

—  Friedrich Nietzsche German philosopher, poet, composer, cultural critic, and classical philologist 1844 - 1900
Context: So far no one had had enough courage and intelligence to reveal me to my dear Germans.

Letter to Carl Fuchs (14 December 1887)
