Encyclopedia entry

When we have understood about free will, we shall see how silly
it is to ask, as somebody once asked me: 'Why did God make a
creature of such rotten stuff that it went wrong?' The better
stuff a creature is made of -- the cleverer and stronger and freer
it is -- then the better it will be if it goes right, but also the
worse it will be if it goes wrong. A cow cannot be very good or
very bad; a dog can be both better and worse; a child better and
worse still; an ordinary man, still more so; a man of genius,
still more so; a superhuman spirit best -- or worst -- of all.
