“Whoever fights

monsters should see

to it that in the process

he does not become a

monster. And if you

gaze long enough into

an abyss, the abyss will

gaze back into you.”

– Friedrich Nietzsche

  1. Excellent choice of picture to go with the words. The photograph is poignant and beautiful in a strange and horrific way. Though the focus of the picture is a young boy, apparently the victim of some terrible crime, the look in his eyes suggests some dark secret. Both the poem and the photograph combine in many suggestive ways.

  2. Who the monster-fighters and who the monsters?

    Aren’t monster-fighters monstrous to monsters?
