Explore the value of Responsibility
A man sooner or later discovers that he is the master-gardener of his soul, the director of his life.
Find joy in everything you choose to do. Every job, relationship, home... it's your responsibility to love it, or change it.
Ability is a wonderful thing, but its value is greatly enhanced by dependability. Ability implies repeatability and accountability.
Robert A. Heinlein
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.
When we no longer hold people responsible for their choices, civility and common sense will be diminished.
Robert A. Levy
George L. Bell
Call it a clan, call it a network, call it a tribe, call it a family. Whatever you call it, whoever you are, you need one.
Words have special powers. The power to create smiles or frowns. The power to generate laughs or tears. The power to lift up or put down. The power to motivate or de-motivate. The power to teach good or evil. The power to express love or hate. The power to give or take. The power to heal or harm. Choose your words carefully.
Sir Winston Churchill

We need to leave behind: "I didn't know, I didn't understand, I didn't think" and take responsibility for our actions. It is time to take responsibility to know, to understand and to think for ourselves without blaming others or expecting others to do it for us.
