The liar's punishment is not in the least that he is not believed, but that he cannot believe anyone else.

If you could choose

If you could choose the life you live, how would it be? If you could choose your surroundings, what would they look like?

If you could choose the people with whom you associate, who would they be? If you could choose your activities, what would you be doing?

If you could choose your thoughts, what would you think? If you could choose your feelings, how would you feel?

If you could choose your priorities, what would they be? If you could choose to commit your time, your energy and your skills to something, what would it be?

If you could choose how to spend the next moment, what would you do with it? What would you do if you knew that all your choices, in each moment, in each circumstance, would mold and shape the life you live?

The good news is, you can choose, now and in every moment to come, and those choices add up to the life you live. So remember each time to choose the best.

— Ralph Marston
