Quote
"The distinguishing but also dangerous feature of poetic natures is their exhaustive fantasy: which anticipates, sees in advance, enjoys in advance, suffers in advance what will occur and what might occur and finally in the actual moment, is tired of the occurrence and the deed. Lord Byron, who knew about this all too well, wrote in his diary: “If I have a son, he should become something entirely prosaic - a lawyer or a pirate.”"

— Friedrich Nietzsche (via hierarchical-aestheticism)
