Will & Willpower

The hero is the self-willed man.

What does self-willed mean? Does it mean “having a will of one’s own?” The human herd instinct demands adaptation and subordination, but for his highest honor man elects not the meek, the pusillanimous, the supine, but precisely the self-willed man, the heroes.

-Bruce Lee (from Striking Thoughts: Wisdom for Daily Living)
