Stendhal (quoted by Nietzsche in this passage posted earlier, and cited here as context for the earlier post)
Nos parents et nos maîtres sont nos ennemis naturels quand nous entrons dans le monde.
Our parents and teachers are our natural enemies from the time we enter the world.
Insomniac passing anhypnic nights in writing, translation, music, mathematics, programming and whatever else captures my attention or alleviates agrypnia.
This consists mostly of quotations of things that stand out to me or reflect what's on my mind; occasionally I also post original, often more personal, content as well, which may be found under the "personal" tag. Anything posted under "translations" is also original work and may broadly be taken as personal as well as I seldom tackle a work that does not speak to or for me in some way.
