"What is right and what is wrong under the new conditions must be determined from a deeper level–from a more fundamental understanding of true morality. To go back to the old standard of "authority" would mean inevitable regression. Those who have assumed the task of determining what is right for themselves can never again find 'goodness' simply by doing what they are told."

"In myths the acquiring of individuality, of personal autonomy, is always represented as a theft, a stealing of something which the gods have reserved for themselves; for to be individual is to be godlike. Thus we have Adam and Eve stealing the knowledge of good and evil–a knowledge in their case closely linked with the stealing of instinct. The story of Prometheus stealing the divine fire and bringing it to earth has the same motif. But in the myths only the hero was capable of this deed.

(The story that in part inspired this card, except I traded the rooster for a crow and owl, and the cat and dog for the anthropomorphic fox)
"A donkey, a dog, a cat, and a rooster (or hen), all past their prime years in life and usefulness on their respective farms, were soon to be discarded or mistreated by their masters. One by one, they leave their homes and set out together. They decide to go to Bremen, known for its freedom, to live without owners and become musicians there ("Something better than death we can find anywhere")."
