Ainsi naissent les mythologies, les doctrines, et les farces sanglantes. aspect d'intolérance ou de prosélytisme qui ne révèle le fond bestial de l'enthousiasme. Ce qu'il faut détruire dans l'homme, c'est sa propension à croire, son appétit de puissance, sa faculté monstrueuse d'espérer, sa hantise d'un dieu.'
