Against the Slanderers of Nature.  They are unpleasant to me, those men in whom every natural inclination forthwith becomes a disease, something disfiguring, or even disgraceful.  They have seduced us to the opinion that the inclinations and impulses of men are evil; they are the cause of our great injustice to our own nature, and to all nature!  There are enough of men who may yield to their impulses gracefully and carelessly: but they do not do so, for fear of that imaginary "evil thing" in nature!  That is the cause why there is so little nobility to be found among men: the indication of which will always be to have no fear of oneself, to expect nothing disgraceful from oneself, to fly without hesitation whithersoever we are impelled we free born birds!  Wherever we come, there will always be freedom and sunlight around us.
