“You can bind up my leg, but not even Zeus has the power to break my freedom of choice.”

— EPICTETUS, DISCOURSES, 1.1.23

Freedom Of Choice

What?

Freedom of choice is the ability to make your own decisions, based solely on what you desire.

You have this freedom of choice, always.

It’s Superior

Freedom of choice is superior.

People can lock you up.

People can imprison you.

People can bind up your leg.

People can rob you of everything.

However, nothing has the power to break your freedom of choice.

You will always have that freedom, no matter what.

That freedom is yours, nobody can take it from you.
