Gerrit von Honthorst – the laughing violinist (1624)

“You higher men, the worst about you is: none of you has learned to dance as a man ought to dance – dance beyond yourselves! What does it matter that you are failures! How much is still possible! So learn to laugh beyond yourselves, lift up your hearts, you fine dancers, higher and higher! And do not forget to laugh well!”

– Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra
