:: Freedom ::

:: Freedom ::

Stone walls do not a prison make
Nor iron bars a cage
Minds innocent and quiet take
That for an hermitage
If I have freedom in my love
And in my soul am free
Angels alone, that soar above
Enjoy such liberty

- Richard Lovelace, To Althea, From Prison -

and I once wrote..
"And chastity belts do not a virgin make.."

Hmm... Will we never be free from this quest for freedom...

And please don't flame me for this as I can't help but feel that the analogy involving the angels (the biblical ones at least) is a little inappropriate for angels supposedly have even less freedom than man due to the absence of free will...

Someone shared the same about angels not having a choice to choose . But hey , one did made a choice . A choice to go against ... Is that freedom ?

Hmmm.... then he isn't only one in that case. He was the first but one third of the others also chose to follow him if I'm not mistaken.

I'm not very good at all this theological stuff though a similar argument can be found in the case of Judas. Did he really have a choice to rebel / betray or was it all part of some divine plan...

But anyway I'm really not keen to go down that road or pursue this any further as I feel that such debates are pretty pointless... different people will always have different points of view so the best way to get around it is to agree to disagree... I feel that we will only receive a definite answer when it doesn't matter anymore...

haha . yup , I share your sentiment.

To quote Eleanor Wong in a recent interview - "This house believes that being thoughtful is better than proven right..."
