manifest Destiny

October 19, 2006

men heap together the mistakes of their lives and create a monster they call destiny

a good friend of mine uses this quote in her sig line as a constant reminder that personal responsibility is everything.

more and more i find this an apt perspective in life. collectively, we humans love our excuses. fate, destiny, the devil, god :: all scapegoats.

of course, we also seem to be the only species to have developed a formal system of politics.
