Freedom, however, is not the last word.  Freedom is only part of the story and half of the truth.  Freedom is but the negative aspect of the whole phenomenon whose positive aspect is responsibleness.  In fact, freedom is in danger of degenerating into mere arbitrariness unless it is lived in terms of responsibleness.

-- Viktor Emil Frankl (1905 - 1997), Austrian neurologist, psychiatrist, and philosopher, (1956) Man's Search for Meaning, p. 209-210
