Herzog vs Jean Paul

oh, they can be so dramatic, these Germans!

"I heard only the eternal storm, which no one rules, and the shimmering rainbow, strechted over the abyss and falling into it. And when I looked up to the immeasurable world in search of the divine eye, only an empty eyesocket stared back at me; an eternity lay upon chaos and gnawed at it and chewed upon itself. Cry out, raise a cacophony, scream until the shadow breaks, for He is not! ... Rigid, speechless nothing! Cold, eternal necessity! Insane chance!"

Jean Paul, Siebenkäse (1796)
