Money Wisdom #338

" 'All the beauty and sublimity we have bestowed upon real and imaginary things I will reclaim,' [Nietzsche] said. He did not reclaim them only for himself, but 'as the property and product of man.' The game that was played in this way was that of the being that we are against the being that we have created, that we have imagined, and for which we have renounced the possibility of seeing the magnificence in ourselves. "

Georges Bataille The Accursed Share Vol 3 Sovereignty (1988 [1967]) p.375-6
