Meaning of 'look into the abyss' phrase

Posted by Victoria on May 25, 2004

I think it was Nietsche, but there is a phrase that goes something like "why you look into the abyss, the abyss looks back a you". Trying to explain it so someone... Can you help with an explanation/definition I can offer?
