Who really wants to get to know something new (be it a human being, an event, a book), who does well to accept this new with all possible love, of everything that seems hostile, offensive, wrong to him to quickly turn away the eye, even to forget it: so that for example one gives the author of a book the greatest advantage and almost, as in a race, with a beating heart desires that he reaches his goal. With this procedure you get the new thing to its heart, to its moving point: and that means getting to know it. When one is ready, the mind makes its restrictions behind it; that overestimation, that temporary unhooking of the critical pendulum was just the trick to lure out the soul of a thing.
