We are not a product of what has happened to us in our past. We have the power of choice.
~ Stephen Covey
I went to the woods to live deliberately, to front the essential facts of life and learn what they had to teach; and not, when it came time to die, discover that I had not lived.
~ H.D. Thoreau
Take control of your own destiny. Life does not happen to people. We are able to make choices and live deliberately and actively.
