New chains


I saw a poster on the wall with this quote:

Those who do not move, do not notice their chains -- Rosa Luxemburg.

Later the same day I went to a lecture where Nietzsche was quoted:

"Free will" really means nothing more than the absence of feeling of new chains. -- Friedrich Nietzsche, The Wanderer and His Shadow, 1880.

Strange coincidence.
