Of all living things, only man was given the power of choice Ė so you could say we are masters of our own destinies. We could just drift along the current of life or we could choose to steer ourselves.

Donít sit down in the meadow
And wait for the cow to back up to be milked.
Go after the cow! 

Life is a Gamble

God gave us two ends,
One to sit on
The other to think with.

Our success depends on which end we use most,
Heads we win.
Tails we lose!
