Previous Section   70. THE WILL IS ASHAMED OF THE INTELLECT   Next Section

The Will is Ashamed of the Intellect.  In all coolness we make reasonable plans against our passions.  But we make the most serious mistake in this connection in being often ashamed, when the design has to be carried out, of the coolness and calculation with which we conceived it.  So we do just the unreasonable thing, from that sort of defiant magnanimity that every passion involves.
