If you must tell me your opinions, tell me what you believe in. I have plenty of doubts of my own.
-- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe


Wednesday, July 16, 1997


Destiny is inevitable. You will become what you are destined to become. Yet destiny is also your choice.

You are free to take any action you wish. And once you have taken the action, you create a destiny for yourself. Everything has consequences. We cannot change what those consequences are. Yet we most certainly can adjust our actions to bring the consequences we desire.

You have a destiny. It is being created today by your thoughts and deeds. To control your destiny, you simply control yourself. To reach a destiny of greatness, you must live with greatness.

Your life today forms your destiny for tomorrow. Your destiny is whatever you’re willing to make it.

— Ralph Marston
