Common to both is the loving devotion to that which transcends personal concerns and volition. Albert Einstein

I do not at all believe in human freedom in the philosophical sense... Schopenhauer's saying, "A man can do what he wants, but not will what he wants," has been a very real inspiration to me since my youth; it has been a continual consolation in the face of life's hardships, my own and others", and an unfailing wellspring of tolerance.
