Roman Payne, The Wanderess

Joyce Rachelle
“Don't be afraid to make mistakes. But if you do, make new ones. Life is too short to make the wrong choice twice.”
Joyce Rachelle

Sherrilyn Kenyon
“The worst decisions in life we make are always the one we make out of fear.”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Born of Betrayal

Tara Westover
“Choices, numberless as grains of sand, had layered and compressed, coalescing into sediment, then into rock, until all was set in stone.”
Tara Westover, Educated: A Memoir

Sandhya Menon
“I was so afraid of going down the same path as my parents, of ending up in the same domestic life, that I forgot to consider one thing: This is our life. We get to decide the rules. We get to say what goes and what stays, what matters and what doesn't.”
Sandhya Menon, When Dimple Met Rishi

“You already made the choice, you are simply here to walk it.”
L.J. Vanier

Lukasz Laniecki
“That’s not our role here, provide our parents with a “success story” to share at gatherings.

Our role here is to contribute the best we can to the society. Use our talents and make sure we add the greatest value possible to other people’s lives.”
Lukasz Laniecki, You Have The Right Not To Make Your Parents Proud. A Book Of Quotes

Suzanne Woods Fisher
“Better to stop one paddle short than one too far.”
Suzanne Woods Fisher, A Lancaster County Christmas

Hayden Carruth
“many paths in the forest have chosen me. I go on any.”
Hayden Carruth, Asphalt Georgics

Lukasz Laniecki
“People have a much greater chance of finding something they’ll enjoy doing and making those greatest contributions when they trust themselves and are free to make their own life choices (are not marionettes in the hands of their parents).”
Lukasz Laniecki, You Have The Right Not To Make Your Parents Proud. A Book Of Quotes

“I could just avoid answering, as other have done before, by saying that when you don't ask me I know, but when you ask me, I do not know the answer anymore. There are some choices that you know are coming upon you only when they are just about to explode. But there are other choices that insinuate themselves into you and become apparent with a kind of obstinate lightness, that seem to have slowly grown within you during the happenings of your life because of a mixing of molecules and thoughts.”
Loris Malaguzzi

James Baldwin
“Nobody can stay in the garden of Eden," Jacques said. And then: "I wonder why."
...
Everyone, after all, goes the same dark road--and the road has a trick of being most dark, most treacherous, when it seems most bright--and it's true that nobody stays in the garden of Eden.
... Perhaps everybody has a garden of Eden, I don't know; but they have scarcely seen their garden before they see the flaming sword. Then, perhaps, life only offers the choice of remembering the garden or forgetting it. Either, or: it takes strength to remember, it takes another type of strength to forget, it takes a hero to do both. People who remember court madness through pain, the pain of the perpetually recurring death of their innocence; people who forget court another kind of madness, the madness of the denial of the pain and the hatred of innocence; and the world is mostly divided between madmen who remember and madmen who forget. Heroes are rare.”
James Baldwin, Giovanni's Room

Charles Frazier
“Whether you pick well or poorly, the act of choosing carries grief. Leaves you wondering, years later, what life might have been had you chosen differently. . . . Or even wishing you'd simply paused, taken a long, deep breath. Not allowed the personal moment and the pattern of your family and your stupid culture to shove you two-handed from behind, forcing you to stumble unbalanced into the future”
Charles Frazier, Varina

“Everything is a choice and every choice has a consequence; a good one or bad one! We choose to choose every day, whether we choose not to choose, but it is not all our choices that result in something better! It is not all our choices that result in something lasting! It is not all our choices that result in something fulfilling. No matter what our daily conscious and unconscious choices result in, the lessons from the results of our choices that can help shape our next choices must never be neglected, for they that shall neglect the lessons from the consequences of their choices shall always choose and choose again and again, and in the end, they shall never see any lasting and fulfilling footprints!”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

Carla Reighard
“Life is about choices, and each person has to decide which path they will take.”
Carla Reighard, Settlers

“nothing is granted. your selection may be correct, but it wasn't meant for you. not the right time, not the right place. not this time”
Joseph Mathew

Lukasz Laniecki
“They (parents) have been doing this (imposing their beliefs about life on you) since you were born. That’s more than enough to establish a habit.”
Lukasz Laniecki, You Have The Right Not To Make Your Parents Proud. A Book Of Quotes

Lukasz Laniecki
“None of us has an obligation to accept the definitions of ‘respect’ and ‘gratitude’ our parents espoused, especially when those definitions can be used to guilt-trip us, or when they are being used for the purpose of forcing us to do certain things (as an extortion mechanism).”
Lukasz Laniecki, You Have The Right Not To Make Your Parents Proud. A Book Of Quotes

Lukasz Laniecki
“They (parents) want life to unfold according to what they believe. Most people want that. The last thing they want and need, is somebody (let alone their own child) telling them that their beliefs about life are bullshit / full of holes/ severely flawed.”
Lukasz Laniecki, You Have The Right Not To Make Your Parents Proud. A Book Of Quotes

Lukasz Laniecki
“We grow up in a belief system according to which children should always make their parents proud and happy (instead of making themselves proud and happy) - and that’s unfortunately the belief system in most cultures.”
Lukasz Laniecki, You Have The Right Not To Make Your Parents Proud. A Book Of Quotes

“I believe in Divine Connection. Some encounters are brief, but it can expand your perspective, and subsequently change the course of your life.”
Izey Victoria Odiase

“Some choices will either make you perish or prosper, choose properly.”
Gift Gugu Mona

Lukasz Laniecki
“It’s safer/ easier to follow the script and complain how broken some things are in that script, than to attempt to change those things.”
Lukasz Laniecki, You Have The Right Not To Make Your Parents Proud. A Book Of Quotes

Lukasz Laniecki
“They know a lot, but they don’t know everything, and they can’t advise you on anything.

They can only tell you what they believe worked / or didn’t work for them.”
Lukasz Laniecki, You Have The Right Not To Make Your Parents Proud. A Book Of Quotes

Lukasz Laniecki
“Our parents are not the only people on this planet, and we should not base our life choices on what they want (what will bring them a peace of mind, satisfaction, and give them a reason to brag), but we should make those choices keeping in mind that there are upwards of 7,5 billion people in this world, and that we should use our talents and energy trying to improve the lives of as many of them as possible.”
Lukasz Laniecki, You Have The Right Not To Make Your Parents Proud. A Book Of Quotes

Susan Meissner
“Who of us know what we would have done had circumstances changed and we had the chance to make different choices?
I said
I honestly don't know.....”
Susan Meissner, A Fall of Marigolds

Lukasz Laniecki
“Parents were good to us, gave us a lot, took care for us when we couldn’t have taken care for ourselves, wanted the best for us, continue to care about us and our future, but none of it is good enough a reason to fulfil their dreams/ do everything in order to make them happy/ provide them with a peace of mind, or whatever they want for themselves.”
Lukasz Laniecki, You Have The Right Not To Make Your Parents Proud. A Book Of Quotes
