Quote by Francis Quarles
Beware of him that is slow to anger for when it is long coming, it is the stronger when it comes, and the longer kept. Abused patience turns to fury.
This quote warns against underestimating someone who takes a long time to display anger. If their anger is not immediately apparent, it does not mean it is weak or nonexistent. In fact, their delayed anger can be more forceful and intense once it is unleashed. Furthermore, when patient individuals are consistently mistreated or pushed to their limits, their patience can transform into a raging fury. Thus, the quote emphasizes the hidden power and potential consequences associated with suppressed anger and abused patience.
Honestly, I cannot understand what people mean when they talk about the freedom of the human will. I have a feeling, for instance, that I will something or other; but what relation this has with freedom I cannot understand at all. I feel that I will to light my pipe and I do it; but how can I connect this up with the idea of freedom? What is behind the act of willing to light the pipe? Another act of willing? Schopenhauer once said: Der Mensch kann was er will; er kann aber nicht wollen was er will (Man can do what he will but he cannot will what he wills).
