Quote for the Week

The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide your problems are your own. You do not blame them on your mother, the ecology, or the president. You realize that you control your own destiny.

- Albert Ellis

With the exception of health and that of family, most of that which hurt that befell me was due in some part to my own doing, stubborness, refusing to listen to those who were old and wiser as to choices in friends or boyfrirends or that the laws of physics did not apply to me and that 10 speed.

Excellent quote.
