About Me
Ecce homo

Ja, ich weiß, woher ich stamme
Ungesättigt gleich der Flamme
Glühe und verzehr ich mich.
Licht wird alles, was ich fasse,
Kohle alles, was ich lasse:
Flamme bin ich sicherlich!

Nietzsche, Friedrich Wilhelm, 1844-1900

Ecce homo

Oh, Yes! I know, from whence I came!
Insatiably, just like the flame
I ignite and burn up Me.
All things I grasp transform to light,
I leave just embers and graphite:
I am fire - with certainty!
