"You want to live ‘according to nature’?  O you noble Stoics, what fraudulent words!  Think of a being such as nature is, prodigal beyond measure, indifferent beyond measure, without aims or intentions, without mercy or justice, at once fruitful and barren and uncertain; think of indifference itself as a power - how could you live according to such indifference?  To live - is that not precisely wanting to be other than this nature?  Is living not valuating, preferring, being unjust, being limited, wanting to be different?  And even if your imperative ‘live according to nature’ meant at bottom the same thing as ‘live according to life’ - how could you not do that? Why make a principle of what you yourselves are and must be? -
The truth of it is, however, quite different: while you rapturously pose as deriving the canon of your law from nature, you want something quite the reverse of that, you strange actors and self deceivers!  Your pride wants to prescribe your morality, your ideal, to nature, yes to nature itself, and incorporate them in it;”
-Friedrich Nietzsche, “Beyond Good and Evil”
