I was one of the many horses pulling the wagon and couldn't escape left or right because of the will of the driver.

Now that I look back, I realize that a life predicated on being obedient and taking orders is a very comfortable life indeed. Living in such a way reduces to a minimum one's need to think.
To sum it all up, I must say that I regret nothing.
