"Through valuation only is there value; and without valuation the nut of existence would be hollow. Hear it, ye creating ones!"

- Thus Spoke Zarathustra

"But even the superfluous ones make much ado about their death, and even the hollowest nut wanteth to be cracked."

- Thus Spoke Zarathustra

Here we see a selection of rare, early 'woodcut comics' by Charles Schulz. It is impossible to miss the ways in which they anticipate characters and themes the artist would later popularise in his better-known "Peanuts" strips. (Pen, ink and newsprint also eventually spared him the pains of incising pearwood, painstakingly, to make the things.)

 

"'Eternally he returneth, the man of whom thou art weary, the small man' — so yawned my sadness, and dragged its foot and could not go to sleep."

- Thus Spoke Zarathustra

"Thou goest straight and crooked ways; it concerneth thee little what seemeth straight or crooked unto us men. Beyond good and evil is thy domain. It is thine innocence not to know what innocence is."

- Thus Spoke Zarathustra
