The strong individual loves the earth so much he lusts for recurrence. He
can smile in the face of the most terrible thought: meaningless, aimless
existence recurring eternally. The second characteristic of such a man is
that he has the strength to recognise — and to live with the recognition —
that the world is valueless in itself and that all values are human ones.
He creates himself by fashoning his own values; he has the pride to live
by the values he wills.
