we can still choose

"I guess we are who we are for a lot of reasons. And maybe we’ll never know most of them. But even if we don’t have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from there. We can still do things. and we can try to feel okay about them."
- from The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
