Shedding one's skin. The snake that cannot shed its skin perishes. So do the spirits who are prevented from changing their opinions; they cease to be spirit.
He who has always spared himself much will in the end become sickly of so much consideration. Praised be what hardens!

My doctrine is: Live that thou mayest desire to live again - that is thy duty - for in any case thou wilt live again!
When Zarathustra was alone . . . he said to his heart: "Could it be possible! This old saint in the forest hath not yet heard of it, that God is dead!"
And we should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once. And we should call every truth false which was not accompanied by at least one laugh.
