There's a kind of radar that you get, after years of being talked about and made fun of by other people.

But i had not forgotten.
I do not believe in free will. Schopenhauer's words: 'man can do what he wants, but he cannot will what he wills,' accompany me in all situations throughout my life and reconcile me with the actions of others, even if they are rather painful to me. This awareness of the lack of free will keeps me from taking myself and my fellow men too seriously as acting and deciding individuals, and from losing my temper.
Relationships, easy to get into, hard to maintain. Why are they so hard to maintain? Because its hard to keep up the lie! Cause you cant get nobody being you. You got to lie to get somebody. You cant get nobody looking like you look, acting like you act, sounding like you sound. When you meet somebody for the first time, youre not meeting them. Youre meeting their representative!
God has formed us moral agents... that we may promote the happiness of those with whom he has placed us in society, by acting honestly towards all, benevolently to those who fall within our way, respecting sacredly their rights, bodily and mental, and cherishing especially their freedom of conscience, as we value our own.
