LECHEROUS FEVER

"The crux of the curious difficulty lies in the fact that our conscious views of what life is ought to be seldom correspondent to what life really is. Generally we refuse to admit within ourselves, or within our friends, the fullness of that pushing, self-protective, malodorous, carnivorous, lecherous fever which is the very nature of the organic cell. Rather, we tend to perfume, whitewash, and reinterpret; meanwhile imagining that all the flies in the ointment, all the hairs in the soup are the faults of some unpleasant someone else".

Joseph Campbell, The Hero With a Thousand Faces, 2008 pp. 101-2 [1949]
