My schoolfellows used to tease me on account of my seriousness.

But what the close similarity between it and Nietzsche’s youthful Christian piety suggests is that at the heart of his mature thought is the effort to rediscover, even in God’s absence, central elements of the passionate Christian’s stance to existence.
