You are the person who has to decide. Whether you'll do it or toss it aside; you are the person who makes up your mind. Whether you'll lead or will linger behind. Whether you'll try for the goal that's afar. Or just be contented to stay where you are. ~Edgar A. Guest

Choices are the hinges of destiny. ~Attributed to both Edwin Markham and Pythagoras

Consider what you think justice requires, and decide accordingly. But never give your reasons; for your judgment will probably be right, but your reasons will certainly be wrong. ~Lord Mansfield

The hardest thing to learn in life is which bridge to cross and which to burn. ~David Russell

We choose our joys and sorrows long before we experience them. ~Kahlil Gibran

My grandfather was a great follower of KG. But I think you know that.

I was always the follower...until I woke up one day and discovered that I was forging my own path. Never assume you know yourself.
