For this alone is fitting for a philosopher. We have no right to isolated acts of any kind: we may not make isolated errors or hit upon isolated truths. Rather do our ideas, our values, our yeas and nays, our ifs and buts, grow out of us with the necessity with which a tree bears fruit – related and each with an affinity to each, and evidence of one will, one health, one soil, one sun. – Whether you like them, these fruits of ours? – But what is that to the trees? What is that to us, to us philosophers! – Friedrich Nietzsche, On the Genealogy of Morals, Preface
