Recollection of an idle chat with my teacher about 20 years ago.
JK: I heard Bob Dylan today on the radio – Blowing In The Wind. It sounded weak and dated.
SM: But he was a great songwriter and he did write about freedom.
JK: Yes, precisely the sort of freedom I already have too much of.

Our freedom is not economic freedom or political freedom – not the freedom to make choices or develop opinions (which tend to follow the herd anyway), but freedom of spirit – the freedom to be at your best when required, which means freedom from resentment and self-pity, freedom from ego.
