Wer mit Ungeheuern kämpft, mag zusehn, dass er nicht dabei zum Ungeheuer wird. Und wenn du lange in einen Abgrund blickst, blickt der Abgrund auch in dich hinein.
He who does battle with monsters should take care, lest he thereby become a monster. And if you gaze too long into the abyss, the abyss gazes also into you.
–Friedrich Nietzsche, Jenseits von Gut und Böse, Nr. 146 (1886) in: Werke in drei Bänden, vol. 2, p. 636 (K. Schlechta ed. 1973) my translation
