Valentine: One of Nietzsche's paradoxical sayings (epigram), subject to interpretation by the reader.

Taken literally (word for word), one needs to be careful; if you fight monsters not to become one yourself  and the gazing into an abyss is reciprocal.  Wonder what Nietzsche would think of the world-wide web social media ?  Thanks for your comment !  Al

And what does that mean FNietzsch? I guess, fight little with the monster and gaze little into the abyss.For fighting with the monster is not palatable and gazing into the abyss is also terrific but the knowledge about the two conditions is known .This translates to the fact that, we must not sit on the fence while the world is in moral crisis
