the weak and the strong

I'm having to make decisions about my future at the moment, and so I've been thinking about the privilege of choice.

Someone much wiser than me, the German theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer said something very true on the subject. Something that's currently latched onto my thinking:
It is the nature, and the advantage, of strong people that they can bring out the crucial questions and form a clear opinion about them. The weak always have to decide between alternatives that are not their own. - bonhoeffer
