To read a book at such a time is simply depraved!

From Nietzsche’s Ecce Homo, Why I Am so Clever:

I have seen this with my own eyes: gifted natures with a generous and free disposition, ‘read to ruin’ in their thirties – merely matches that one has to strike to make them emit sparks – ‘thoughts.’  Early in the morning, when day breaks, when all is fresh, in the dawn of one’s strength – to read a book at such a time is simply depraved!”

Yeah, well, you know, that’s just, like, your opinion, man.
