make it so

it’s your life —

but only if you make it so.

the standards by which you live

must be

your own standards,

your own values,

your own convictions in regard to

what is right and wrong,

what is true and false,

what is important and what is trivial.

when you adopt

the standards and the values

of someone else

or a community

or pressure group,

you surrender your own integrity.

you become,

to the extent of your surrender,

less of a human being.
