A Quote from Schopenhauer

I was reading a book by Albert Einstein at midnight yesterday, in which he gave a quote from Schopenhauer that “accompany me in all situations throughout my life and reconcile me with the actions of others, even if they are rather painful to me.”

The quote reads:

“Man can do what he wants, but he cannot will what he wants.”

Truly reconciling.
