For ten years hast thou climbed hither unto my cave: thou wouldst have wearied of thy light and of the journey, had it not been for me, mine eagle, and my serpent.
Found this in Nietzche's Thus Spoke Zarathustra and I was wondering what it meant. Hither means "to or toward this place" and unto means "to", so what does "hither unto" mean? I am a little bit confused. Could it be possible that unto means something else here? Even if it meant "until" or "by" it would not make much sense.
