82 THUS SPAKE ZARATHUSTRA, I
I teach you the friend in whom there standeth the world finished, a husk of the good, the creative friend who hath ever a finished world in his gift.
And as, for him, the world hath unrolled itself so it rolleth itself up again in rings being the growth of good out of evil, the growth of purposes out of chance.
Let the future and the most remote be for thee the cause of thy to-day : in thy friend thou shalt love beyond-man as thy cause.
My brethren, I counsel you not to love your neigh- bour, I counsel you to love those who are the most remote."
Thus spake Zarathustra.
