“There is only one me. There is only one you.
The words I say, the words I write belong to me; as do my desires, ambitions and talents, as do my shortcomings and frustrations. Your words, desires, ambitions, talents, shortcomings and frustrations, belong to you.
What I do in life; where I go; what I accomplish or fail to accomplish rests on my shoulders, and my shoulders alone. What you do; where you go; what you accomplish or fail to accomplish rests on no other shoulders than yours.
I have the ability to make things better or make them worse; only I am responsible for the choices I make. You can soar with your dreams or bow to the beckoning of evil; only you are responsible for the choices you make.
When the identity of my body flickers and the last ember dies, I must answer only to myself. And when your lifetime is over, you must answer to none other than you.”
