The illimitable freedom of the human mind has proven over time to be a double-edged sword. When counterpoised by purity of heart, this freedom emancipates man from the strictures of human nature and liberates his finest creative impulses. When backed by a troubled heart, however, this freedom opens the door the worst atrocities man has known.
Brilliance without wisdom is fool’s gold. Power without conscience is a fool’s mate in the game of life. Take care that you worship at the altar of neither.
