"He who fights with monsters might take care lest he become a monster... If you gaze for long into an abyss, it gazes also into you."
Beyond Good and Evil
This is a simpler version of an illustration I've been wanting to draw. I don't know if I will get to it anytime soon or at all. So here it is, sort of.
Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche was a German philosopher. I had a hard time researching this quote, I am not 100% sure it is from that particular book. Someone correct me if they know. There was even several different versions of the quote, and I can't translate the original German text myself of course, so I took a bit from each of those versions and arranged it in a way I thought flowed the best.
