Lying is done with words and also with silence.
-- Adrienne Rich


Friday, March 7, 1997


Everything you do is intentional. The actions you take, you take because you choose to do so. The stimulus can come from anywhere, but the response comes from you. Every action, every moment, determines the direction of your life.

You have made the choices, and taken the actions that have led you to this point. More importantly, you will make the choices and take the actions that determine your future.

You can learn from the past, but the past does not control you. Just because you have used poor judgment in the past, doesn’t mean you have to continue doing so. You can change your life the moment you decide to change.

You are more than your past. You are more than your mistakes. Your life is whatever you decide to make it.

— Ralph Marston
