Quote from my mom
Each person must paddle his/her own canoe.
Moral of the "story:" While we may share our views and values and aspirations (for ourselves and for others) - with the people we care for .. ultimately, they have to be the ones to decide for themselves what they want to do with their lives and in their lives. Hence, "each person must paddle his/her own canoe." We can't do it for them - we probably shouldn't do it for them.
