Yes Don, you do the quotes very well. I've learned a lot from you.

"And one who is just of his own free will shall not lack for happiness; and he will never come to utter ruin."
Aeschylus

Back in college, we had some intense discussions about "free will" in our philosophy classes. some believed in free will and others believed in destiny.
I bet that conversation is still going on today.
And now it's on the net, thanks to you.
