Quote of the day

The body is the original animal condition; we are all animals in the body, and so we should have animal psychology in order to live with it. Yes, if we had no body then we could live with contracts and marvelous laws which everybody could easily fulfill. But since we have a body it is indispensable that we exist also as an animal, and each time we invent a new increase of consciousness we have to put a new link in the chain that binds us to the animal. Nietzsche's Zarathustra, 2: p. 967
