The freest Agents are so determined.       §49. If we look upon those superiour Beings above us, who enjoy
perfect Happiness, we shall have reason to judge that they are more
steadily determined in their choice of Good than we; and yet we have no
reason to think they are less happy, or less free, than we are. And if
it were fit for such poor finite Creatures as we are, to pronounce
what infinite Wisdom and Goodness could do, I think, we might say,
That God himself cannot choose what is not good; the Freedom of
the Almighty hinders not his being determined by what is best.
Locke Hum II, 21, §49, p. 265
