Default passage from Thus Spoke Zarathustra

One of my favorite quotes from good ol' Friedrich Nietzsche's masterpiece Also Sprach Zarathustra as translated by Adrain Del Caro and Robert Pippin.

(excerpt from speech "On Apostates" located in Part Three)

"Indeed, this will be the death of me, that I choke from laughter when I see asses drunk and hear night watchmen doubting God's existence like this.

Has the time not long since past even for all such doubting? Who is allowed anymore to wake up such old, sleeping, shade-loving things!

It has been over for the old gods for a long time now -- and truly, they had a good cheerful gods' end!

They did not "twilight" themselves to death -- that is surely a lie! Instead they just one day up and laughed themselves to death!

This happened when the most godless words were uttered by a god himself -- the words: 'There is one god. Thou shalt have no other god before me!' --
--an old grim-beard of a god, a jealous one forgot himself in this way:

And all the gods laughed then and rocked in their chairs and cried: 'Is not godliness precisely that there are gods but no God?'

He who has ears to hear, let him hear.--"
