The Parable of the Brothers:

Two brothers were raised in a home headed by a violent alcoholic father. One brother grew up to be an abusive drinker, the other a solid, loving family man. When asked how they came to live the lives they led, they both gave the same answer: “Given who my father was, how could I not?”

We are much more the product of our choices than our circumstances.

We are much more the product of our choices than our circumstances.
