"Do you believe that your past determines your future? This is not an idle question of philosophical theory. To the extent that you belive that the past determines the future, you will tend to allow yourself to be a passive vessel that does not actively change its course.

Just because it is your thought and you feel a certain way, doesn't make it right. #let_people_do_what_they_want_is_the_nice_and_proper_thing_pattern #philosophy #arguments #logic #references #pub
