For the New Year.  I still live, I still think; I must still live, for I must still think.  Sum, ergo cogito: cogito, ergo sum.  Today everyone takes the liberty of expressing his wish and his favourite thought: well, I also mean to tell what I have wished for myself to day, and what thought first crossed my mind this year, a thought which ought to be the basis, the pledge and the sweetening of all my future life!  I want more and more to perceive the necessary characters in things as the beautiful: I shall thus be one of those who beautify things.  Amor fati: let that henceforth be my love!  I do not want to wage war with the ugly.  I do not want to accuse, I do not want even to accuse the accusers.  Looking aside, let that be my sole negation!  And all in all, to sum up: I wish to be at any time hereafter only a yes sayer!
