Fate and decisions

1 comment:

  1. At the moment, I'm reading Dante's Inferno, and one of the most fascinating ideas Dante has is found near the beginning of the book. The first group of people Dante meets in Hell are those who never really make any sort of commitment to anything and, as a result, are doomed to run after a flag that stands for nothing for the rest of eternity.

    I think it's really sad that there are people out there who never really make any decisions about life, death, faith, the universe or anything else. They're the sort of people who never really make any kind of difference, positive or negative, in the world.
