"We who are homeless.— Among Europeans today there is no lack of those who are entitled to call themselves homeless in a distinctive and honourable sense: it is to them that I especially commend my secret wisdom and ‘gaya scienza’. For their fate is hard, their hopes are uncertain; it is quite a feat to devise some comfort for them — but what avail? 
 We children of the future, how ‘could’ we be at home in this today? We feel disfavor for all ideals that might lead one to feel at home even in this fragile, broken time of transition; as for its “realities”, we do not believe that they will ‘last’. The ice that still supports people today has become very thin; the wind that brings the thaw is blowing; we ourselves who are homeless constitute a force that breaks open ice and other all too thin “realities”.”

- Friedrich Nietzsche, ‘The Gay Science’, Book Five, 377.
 Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche was born on this day, 15th of October, 1844.
