Against the Disparagers of Brevity — Nietzsche

127. Against the Disparagers of Brevity. —A brief dictum may be the fruit and harvest of long reflection. The reader, however, who is a novice in this field and has never considered the case in point, sees something embryonic in all brief dicta, not without a reproachful hint to the author, requesting him not to serve up such raw and ill-prepared food.

—Friedrich Nietzsche, Human, All Too Human, Part II.
