"We have not passed that subtle line
between childhood and adulthood
until we move
from the passive voice
to the active voice -- that is,
until we have stopped saying,
'It got lost,'
and say, 'I lost it.'"

Reader comments about this quote:
I like it, a lot. I haven't lost inalienable rights, the application of natural or common law, justice administration or the freedom that was once guaranteed, for I am still in the battle.

    Take responsibility. You have to get lost to get saved. What are these, inalienable rights ? Then I was taught my rights and thrown in the water to swim. Saved as long as I keep swimming and sharing the knowledge of being free and set at liberty.
     -- Ron w13, Or

    But two words are needed ( the egotistical subscriber said ):

    INDIVIDUAL and RESPONSIBILITY.
     -- Bob Leavitt, Charlotte, VT

    It's called taking responsibility -- in other words, being a grown-up.
