That’s Right Fred. You tell ’em.

I also do not like those who consider everything good and this world the best. Such people I call the omni-satisfied. Omni-satisfaction, which knows how to taste everything, that is not the best taste. I honor the recalcitrant choosy tongues and stomachs, which have learned to say “I” and “yes” and “no.” But to chew and digest everything—that is truly the swine’s manner. Always to bray Yea-Yuh—that only the ass has learned, and whoever is of his spirit.”

– Friedrich Nietzsche, from Thus Spoke Zarathustra

  9. But if we don’t taste everything, how do we know to say “yes” or “no”? Opinions and tastes based on prejudice and assumptions seems more “pig-headed” to me.
