Freewill & Selfishness

To believe that anyone can help themselves absolutely in any conditions, or in other words, that we all have "absolute freewill" - under which indifference becomes virtue, is nothing but selfishness in the guise of intellectual concept.


  1. Here's another great quote to complement that one, Yun:
    "I know but one freedom and that is the freedom of the mind"~ Antoine Saint Exupery

  2. Some things we choose, and some things we don't choose. Although we're always responsible for our actions, we're not necessarily responsible for the things that happen to us

  3. Very interesting, Yun, and I think you make an excellent point!
