We are Hyperboreans–we know well enough how remote our place is. “Neither by land nor by water will you find the road to the Hyperboreans”:​ even Pindar,​((//​Cf.//​ the tenth Pythian ode.

We thirsted for the lightnings and great deeds; we kept as far as possible from the happiness of the weakling, from “resignation”... There was thunder in our air; nature, as we embodied it, became overcast–//​for we had not yet found the way//. The formula of our happiness: a Yea, a Nay, a straight line, a //​goal//​....
