Our choices, then, are like footsteps. Each one takes us farther
down the trail, affecting the route we take, the pace we set,
and the deeds we do along the way. And each one is shaped
by two primary forces: our own inner selves, and the trail
itself -- the landscape of life. So our inner qualities shape
our choices; our choices become our footsteps; and our
footsteps become our journey.
