I do not at all believe in human freedom in the philosophical sense... Schopenhauer's saying,

"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. This realization mercifully mitigates the easily paralyzing sense of responsibility and prevents us from taking ourselves and other people too seriously; it is conducive to a view of life which, in part, gives humour its due."
