Do you have a favorite quote that you return to again and again? What is it, and why does it move you?
I like quotes. I’m inspired by quotes. And I like to post quotes on Facebook because it tends to annoy people and I can be all soapbox-ish without it really sounding like ME. I didn’t exactly SAY it, now did I?
But my absolute favorite quotes are about responsibility.
(UGH! I said the “R” word!)
Like this one, for example:
Because yes, we’re ALL responsible for our own lives. That includes the good AND the bad choices. Find yourself in a bad situation? How did you get there? How do you get out? By taking responsibility for your part in the fiasco and then changing it.
Want it? Take the first step to GETTING it. Waiting around for someone to hand it to you is the lazy way out.
Everyone says to work harder but to work harder you have to care more!—
