Honestly, I cannot understand what people mean when they talk about the freedom of the human will.
I have a feeling, for instance, that I will something or other;
but what relation this has with freedom I cannot understand at all.
I feel that I will to light my pipe and I do it; but 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: Der Mensch kann was er will; er kann aber nicht wollen was er will
(Man can do what he will but he cannot will what he wills).

He who joyfully marches to music rank and file, has already earned my contempt.
He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would surely suffice.
This disgrace to civilisation should be done away with at once.
Heroism at command, how violently I hate all this, how despicable and ignoble war is;
I would rather be torn to shreds than be a part of so base an action.
It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder.
— Albert Einstein
