The Gay Science 290

We need to give our characters a style- to fit our strengths and weakness' into an artistic plan until every one of them appears as art and reason. We add 2nd nature, remove original pieces- both through long practice and daily work. The ugly that can't be removed is concealed- sometimes re-interpreted and made sublime. The strong and domineering natures enjoy such perfection under a law of their own. The weak who don't have power over themselves hate the constraint of style- they hate to serve and like to interpret their environment as free nature. But we must attain satisfaction with ourselves.
