"You and you alone are responsible for you, for your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. You are responsible for the thoughts, feelings, and actions you put out into the world. You are responsible for having your emotional needs met and for asking for what you want, need or desire from others. You and only you are responsible for going after what you truly want in life. It is no one else’s job to do that."

"One's philosophy is not best expressed in words; it is expressed in the choices one makes. In stopping to think through the meaning of what I have learned, there is much I believe intensely, much I am unsure of. But this, at least, I believe with all my heart: In the long run, we shape our lives and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility."

- Eleanor Roosevelt, We Learn By Living.
