“You Are Responsible for Your Actions”


“There’s always pressure, from other people and yourself.  We keep thinking up new things and finding better ways of doing things because we’re not happy with what we’re given.”  (Natalie Portman)



“You are responsible for your actions.  Whether you shine or not is entirely up to you.  No one else.”   (I Wrote This for You)



“In each of us lie good and bad, light and dark, art and pain, choice and regret, cruelty and sacrifice.  We’re each of us our own chiaroscuro, our own bit of illusion fighting to emerge into something solid, something real.  We’ve got to forgive ourselves that.  I must remember to forgive myself.  Because there is a lot of grey to work with.  No one can live in the light all the time.”   (Libba Bray)



“You could be right.  You could be wrong.  Remember this.  Especially the second part.  Being wrong allows you to take responsibility for your actions.  It allows you to change.  Constantly needing to be right doesn’t.”   (I Wrote This for You)



“I found out that the things that hurt us the most can become the fuel and the catalyst that propel us toward our destiny.  It will either make you bitter or it will make you better.”   (T. D. Jakes)



“Lily:  ‘I can never go backwards.  I can only go forward.’

Robin:  ‘No, you’re wrong.  You can go anywhere.  The question is where do you want to go?”   (How I Met Your Mother)
