Chapter 18: Of Old and New Law Tables Part 2
Or was it a sermon of death that called holy that which contradicted and opposed all life? - O my brothers, shatter, shatter the old law-tables!
- because all the sermons in your so-called holy books are not in favor of life; they are sermons of death. And they are called holy! Then what can we call unholy? They all contradict and oppose life.
This should be remembered as a simple criterion: that which opposes life is unholy; that which praises life, that which makes life lovelier, more beautiful, more enjoyable, that which affirms life and its dignity - that is holy.
To live life in its wholeness is holy.
.Thus spake Zarathustra.
