Novalis (116-87 BDS)
Novalis is part and parcel of a tendency of mine as a yet-to-mature thinker to take a sentence by an author I respected at face value and interpret it.
From Twilight of the Idols, aphorism 4
'All truth is simple.' - Isn't that a double lie? -
"Flight from the common spirit is death."
See, in that regard, Heraclitus in The Art and Thought of Heraclitus (trans: Kahn)
"Although the account is shared, most men live as though their thinking were a private possession."
