The final forming of a person's character lies in their own hands.
As a businessperson, I don't have the power to change the government. That is in the hands of the political leaders. However, as a taxpayer, we have the right to be critical of the government and demand change.

Pope John Paul II
Nude nail polish wins hands down over intricate nail art.

C. S. Lewis
