Ma proposal du dionysiaque s'est faite ici motion d'éclat ; comparé à elle, tout autre agir humain apparaît misérable et limité. Qu'un Goethe, qu'un Shakespeare ne sauraient respirer un seul immediate dans cette atmosphère de ardour et d'altitude, que Dante, auprès de Zarathoustra, ne soit qu'un croyant, et non quelqu'un qui begin par créer los angeles vérité, un esprit qui gouverne le monde, un destin -, que les poètes du Véda soient des prêtres et pas même dignes de dénouer les chaussures de Zarathoustra, voilà qui n'est encore qu'une litote et ne donne aucune idée de los angeles distance, de l. a. solitude azuréenne où vit cette oeuvre » (Nietzsche, Ecce Homo, « Pourquoi j'écris de si bons livres »).
