  1. Great choice! I think that the second one is the toughest πŸ™‚ Most of people will look for excuses. It is very difficult not to blame somebody or something. Very difficult.

  2. I like them all but this one best. “In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.” I find that the older I get the more shaping I go through. Nice quotes Karen.

  3. The first one but I am not sure that I agree with the second one. I am sure that the circumstances of our lives shapes us in ways we find very difficult to change.
