“…In the loneliest desert the second metamorphosis occurs: the spirit here becomes a lion; it wants to capture freedom and be lord in its own desert. It seeks here its ultimate lord: it will be an enemy to him and to its ultimate God, it will struggle for victory with the great dragon. What is the great dragon which the spirit no longer wants to call lord and God? The great dragon is called ‘Thou shalt.’ But the spirit of the lion says ‘I will!’ …To create freedom for itself and a sacred No even to duty: the lion is needed for that, my brothers.”
- Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra
