Personal Responsibility

"You must take personal responsibility.  You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of.  You don't have charge of the constellations, but you do have charge of whether you read, develop new skills, and take new classes." -- Jim Rohn

"The place to improve the world is first in one's own heart and head and hands." -- Robert M. Pirsig

"The choice is yours. You hold the tiller. You can steer the course you choose in the direction of where you want to be - today, tomorrow, or in a distant time to come." -- W. Clement Stone

"Don't go around saying the world owes you a living; the world owes you nothing; it was here first." -- Mark Twain
