Quotes about foreground


1. Every philosophy is a foreground philosophy — that is a hermit's judgment: "There is something arbitrary in his stopping here to look back and look around, in his not digging deeper here but laying his spade aside; there is also something suspicious about it."Every philosophy also conceals a philosophy; every opinion is also a hideout, every word also a mask.
- Friedrich Nietzsche, Beyond Good and Evil
