Explore the value of Responsibility
When we no longer hold people responsible for their choices, civility and common sense will be diminished.
Robert A. Levy
Parents can only give good advice or put [their children] on the right path, but the final forming of a person's character lies in their own hands.
George L. Bell
Sir Winston Churchill
I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble.
A man sooner or later discovers that he is the master-gardener of his soul, the director of his life.
You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of.
Find joy in everything you choose to do. Every job, relationship, home... it's your responsibility to love it, or change it.
George Bernard Shaw

You can pretend to care but you can't pretend to show up.
