Quotes About Responsibility

What quotes and sayings about responsibility can actually teach us? One of the most influential lessons I have learnt through my life was that I (and I only) am responsible for my well being and my circumstances. We humans have this bad habit of blaming everything and everybody else for our problems and challenges. However, the root for most of our difficulties lies within us. To recognize this means to accept full responsibility for the direction of own life. All my circumstances are just reflections of the decisions made in the past by - me. Let the quotes and sayings about responsibility tell the story.
