I, that course, likewise came throughout this page as soon as googling it, and also while the estimates here have some similarity with the quote I find for, I'd argue that they are different enough that they can't be considered the same anymore.

The second quote for instance doesn't mention the object of liberty at all.

The first quote, in ~ least just how I'd translate it, is much more about the meaning of man. A guy is characterized by his choices and by the after-effects those choices (and your outcomes) have actually on him.

So while these sound similar, I'd to speak they space not the same.
