"'The most beautiful life possible has always seemed to me to be one where everything is determined, either by the pressure of circumstances or by impulses...and where there is never any room for choice."
                                                                                               -Simone Weil in a letter to a priest

I like that. I hear it not that she doesn't want to have the option of choice, but rather that either circumstances would direct her choices easily, or her passions and desires and impulses would be so strong at moments of decision it would be as if there is no choice. I can relate to wanting life to be that way.
