"The 'impersonal' have a chance to speak. - 'We find nothing easier than being wise, patient
superior. We are dripping with the oil of forbearance and fellow-feeling, we are absurdly fair,
we forgive everything. For that very reason we should keep a tighter rein on ourselves;
for that very reason, from time to time, we should cultivate a little emotion, a little vice
of an emotion. We may find it difficult; and between ourselves we may laugh at how it makes us
look. But what's the use! We have no other kind of self-overcoming left: this is our asceticism,
our penance'... Getting personal - the virtue of the 'impersonal'... "
