Think for yourselves and let others enjoy the privilege to do so, too.

Not what they say

You are not what they say you are, and you are not even what they think you are. You are who you choose to be.

You are the way you choose to live, to speak, to think, to wonder and to wander. You are what you are most profoundly thankful for, and what you love.

You have no obligation to meet anyone else’s expectations. Yet you have a serious obligation to yourself and to life, to set your own expectations beyond even the reaches of imagination.

There is no need and no reason to be intimidated. Live so that what might have previously intimidated you will instead begin to inspire you.

This life you have is nothing short of a miracle. What you do with it today, tomorrow, every little moment, is up to you.

So choose wisely, and remember that in all things you do have a choice. Choose as if your life depends on it, for it does.

— Ralph Marston
