This is my favorite:
"In some remote corner of the universe, poured out and glittering in
innumerable solar systems, there once was a star upon which clever animals
invented knowledge. That was the haughtiest and most mendacious minute of
'world history'; -- yet only a minute. After nature had drawn a few breaths
the star grew cold, and the clever animals had to die."
Nietzsche, "On Truth and Lie in an Extra-Moral Sense"
