" There is so much about my fate that l cannot control, but other things do fall under my jurisdiction. l can decide how to spend my time, whom to interact with, whom to share my body and life and energy with. l can select what l can read and eat and study. l can choose how I'm going to regard unfortunate circumstances in my life - whether l will see them as curses or opportunities. l can choose my words and the tone of voice in which l speak to others. And most of all, l can choose my thoughts."
