Nietzsche's pain

I have given a name to my pain and call it 'dog': it is just as faithful, just as obtrusive and shameless, just as entertaining, just as clever as any other dog—and I can scold it and vent my bad moods on it, as others do with their dogs, servants, and wives. 

~ Nietzsche, Friedrich Wilhelm, and Walter Arnold Kaufmann. 1974. The Gay Science. 1st ed. New York: Random House.
