“Honestly, I cannot understand what people mean when they talk about the freedom of the human will. I have a feeling ..that I will something or other; but what relation this has with freedom I cannot understand at all. ..how can I connect this up with the idea of freedom? What is behind the act of willing to light the pipe? Another act of willing? Schopenhauer once said: Man can do what he will but he cannot will what he wills.” ― Albert Einstein
