It took them three days of inquiries, but they found the bleached, abandoned road — and now they were driving through the yellow leaves that glittered like a sea of gold coins, to the Twentieth Century Motor Company.

[Alexandria. Cleopatra's palace.]

Cleopatra [on news of Antony]:

O well divided disposition! Note him,
Note him, good Charmian, 'tis the man, but note him.

He was not sad, for he would shine on those
That make their looks by his; he was not merry,
Which seemed to tell them his remembrance lay
In Egypt with his joy; but between both.

O heavenly mingle! Be'st thou sad or merry,
The violence of either thee becomes;
So does it no man else.

William Shakespeare
Antony and Cleopatra, 1.5.52-60

On this perfect day, when everything is ripening and not only the grape turns brown, the eye of the sun just fell upon my life: I looked back, I looked forward, and never saw so many and such good things at once. It was not for nothing that I buried my forty-fourth year today; I had the right to bury it; whatever was life in it has been saved, is immortal. The first book of the Revaluation of All Values, the Songs of Zarathustra, the Twilight of the Idols, my attempt to philosophize with a hammer — all presents of this year, indeed of its last quarter! How could I fail to be grateful to my whole life? — and so I tell my life to myself.
