Momir Bulovic, from his series ‘Thus Spoke Zarathustra’
Alas, where in the world have there been greater follies than with the compassionate? And what in the world has caused more suffering than the follies of the compassionate?
Woe to all lovers who cannot surmount pity!
Thus spoke the Devil to me once: “Even God has his Hell. It is his love for man.”
And I lately heard him say these words: “God is dead. God has died of his pity for man.”
