„When a man comes through
He must do what he's supposed to do
When a man comes through.
He can't do what everyone expects him to.“

A New Kind of Man
Song lyrics, A Sense of Wonder (1985)

„Most of the time man does not do what he wills, but what he has willed. Through his decisions, he always gives himself only a certain direction, in which he then moves until the next moment of reflection. We do not will continuously, we only will intermittently“

—  Otto Weininger austrian philosopher and writer 1880 - 1903

Collected Aphorisms
Contexto: Most of the time man does not do what he wills, but what he has willed. Through his decisions, he always gives himself only a certain direction, in which he then moves until the next moment of reflection. We do not will continuously, we only will intermittently, piece by piece. We thus save ourselves from willing: principle of the economy of the will. But the higher man always experiences this as thoroughly immoral.
