“The spiritual man differs from us men in being able to endure isolation, his rank as a spiritual man is proportionate to his strength for enduring isolation, whereas we men are constantly in need of ‘the others,’ the herd; we die, or despair, if we are not reassured by being in the herd, of the same opinion as the herd.”
