Famous Monuments Quotes

It is the noble races that have left behind them the concept barbarian wherever they have gone; even their highest culture betrays a consciousness of it and even a pride in it (for example, when Pericles says to the Athenians in his famous funeral oration our boldness has gained access to every land and sea, everywhere raising imperishable monuments to its goodness and wickedness). This boldness of noble races, mad, absurd, and sudden in its expression, the incalculability, even incredibility of their undertakings—Pericles specially commends the rhathymia of the Athenians—their indifference to and contempt for security, body, life, comfort, their hair-raising cheerfulness and profound joy in all destruction, in all the voluptuousness of victory and cruelty—all this came together, in the minds of those who suffered from it, in the image of the barbarian, the evil enemy, perhaps as the Goths, the Vandals.
— Friedrich Nietzsche —
