worth while

i thought about it again this morning.
i will do my very best, each day, to celebrate my freedom.

it is such a beautiful, valuable gift, which not all of us have.

I do not believe in freedom of will. Schopenhauer's words, "Man can indeed do what he wants, but he cannot want what he wants", accompany me in all life situations and console me in my dealings with people, even those that are really painful to me. This recognition of the unfreedom of the will protects me from taking myself and my fellow men too seriously as acting and judging individuals and losing good humour.
