Eines Tages sagt jemand: „Du bist!“

„We’re all accidents at birth, you know. We don’t get to choose what we look like, we don’t get to choose how gifted we’re gonna be, how tall, how strong, how… we don’t get to choose anything about what we’re gonna be.

One day somebody says „You are“.

At some point or another we have a choice – if we’re sane enough by that point – as to how much we’re gonna apply ourselves. And a lot of that is influenced by the people who nurture us.“

RIP Bill Withers
