Giving Choice

Giving choice

"Freedom of choice is more to be treasured than any possession earth can give."

-- David O. McKay

I want to choose the details of my life. Fortunately, I've come to appreciate how important it is to give others the freedom to choose their own paths.

None of us wants our choice robbed from us. I can't know what's best for anyone but me. So why give unsolicited advice to others and expect them to follow it?

"The truest characters of ignorance are vanity, and pride and arrogance."

-- Samuel Butler

"What man wants is simply independent choice, whatever that may cost and wherever it may lead."

-- Fyodor Dostoyevsky
