quoth the madman

"What is life? Life — that is: continually shedding something that wants to die. Life — that is: being cruel and inexorable against everything about us that is growing old and weak — and not only about us. Life — that is, then: being without reverence for those who are dying, who are wretched, who are ancient? Constantly being a murderer? — And yet old Moses said: ‘Thou shalt not kill.’"
~Friedrich Nietzsche - The Gay Science I-IV
