What do you think this Nietzsche quote means?
“If you stare into the Abyss long enough the Abyss stares back at you”
I’ve often heard people attempt to relate this quote to a situation in which a particular person devotes their life to fighting an evil and the evil ends up influencing and corrupting them. I’m not sure if that particular explanation quite conveys the full meaning of the quote, though.
Do you have any ideas?
