Explore the value of Responsibility
George Bernard Shaw
I believe life is a series of near misses. A lot of what we ascribe to luck is not luck at all. It's seizing the day and accepting responsibility for your future. It's seeing what other people don't see. And pursuing that vision.
The only rule is, do what you really, impulsively, wish to do. But always act on your own responsibility, sincerely. And have the courage of your own strong emotion.
Stanley Martin Lieber
I think of a hero as someone who understands the degree of responsibility that comes with his freedom.
Bob Dylan [Robert Allen Zimmerman]
Find joy in everything you choose to do. Every job, relationship, home... it's your responsibility to love it, or change it.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self-respect springs.

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