genes of life

‘We can be mean, lazy or selfish and blame it on a naughty gene? Nope. Heredity is just a foundation, the pillars of a house, and we still have to put in hard work to build the actual house that stands on top of these pillars. The atmosphere at home, influence of parents and friends, and the attitude of the individual all help in moulding the character of a person’

Louis L Amour…Up to a point a man’s life is shaped by environment, heredity, and movements and changes in the world around him. Then there comes a time when it lies within his grasp to shape the day of his life into the sort of thing he wishes to be. Only the weak blame parents, their race, lack of good fortune, and the quirks of fate. Everyone has it within his power to say, this I am today, that I will be tomorrow’ The Walking Drum
