I don't like definitions, but if there is a definition of freedom, it would be when you have control over your reality to transform it, to change it, rather than having it imposed upon you. You can't really ask for more than that.

Nothing fixes a thing so intensely in the memory as the wish to forget it.
Experience is merely the name men gave to their mistakes.
I have no desire to make windows into mens souls
Do not pray for an easy life, pray for the strength to endure a difficult one.

Time flies over us, but leaves its shadow behind.
