Entsagen

Entsagen, the renunciation with which, according to Goethe, life, strictly speaking, begins, briefly explained by Froude as “a resolution, fixedly and clearly made, to do without pleasant things—wealth, promotion, fame, honour, and the other rewards with which the world recompenses the services it appreciates,” or, still more briefly, the renunciation of the flesh symbolised in the Christian baptism by water.
