"So free we seem, so fettered fast we are!"
"Freedom has a thousand charms to show,
That slaves, howe'er contented, never know."
"Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom."
-Viktor E. Frankl
Let me through a foolish thought swims
And carry forth what it can bring:
Not what a mind can leak at best
But the sprout is all a growing.
So many things that should diffuse
But yet the eyes can't see at all;
Standing where the Gates are opened--
The heart can only break the Wall.
If by chance it ever confuse
When sweet Confinements failed to be:
Let me through a foolish thought swims;
The Soul wanders but is not free.
