What you remove from your existence defines you as much as what you add to your life. Often what you choose is not as important as what your choice leaves behind. If we choose fear, it is courage which is left behind. If we choose hatred, then love is what we leave. If we choose tyranny, liberty remains behind. And therein lies the irony that the the positive we leave behind will be an eternal reminder defining us as the negative we chose to keep.
