Most libertarians agree that all rights are, in effect, property rights, beginning with this fundamental right to self-ownership and control of one's own life. As owners of their own lives, individuals are completely free to do absolutely anything they wish with them provided, of course, that it doesn't violate the identical right of others whether the people around them approve of what they do or not.l. neil smith

In societies with fewer opportunities for amusement, it was also easier to tell a mere wish from a real desire.

When all he has to do is press a switch, it is more difficult. He may easily come to believe that wishes can come true.wystan hugh auden

In determinations depending not on rules, but on experience and comparison, judgement is always to some degree subject to affection.Very near to admiration is the wish to admire.
"Forgetfulness is not to be purchased with a wish; and I cannot bestow my esteem on all who desire it, unless they deserve it too."anne brontë

The passion of hatred is so durable and so inveterate that the surest prognostic of death in a sick man is a wish for reconciliation.
