Context

“«Such a compulsion would be without value. But there is a light that goes deeper than the will, a light that lights up the darkness behind it: that light can change your will, can make it truly yours and not another's—not the Shadow's. Into the created can pour itself the creating will, and so redeem it!»
«That light shall not enter me: I hate it!—Begone, slave!»
«I am no slave, for I love that light, and will with the deeper will which created mine. There is no slave but the creature that wills against its creator.” source
