I Say NO - I Say YES

I say NO to the demands of the world.
I say YES to the longings of my own heart.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

I choose with careful consideration.

I say NO to social pressures. I say NO to community pressures. I say NO to unthinking demands of tradition.

I say YES to kindness. I say YES to compassion. I say YES to honor. I say YES to worthy forms of service.

Further reading: Gandhi quote: A 'No' uttered from deepest conviction is better and greater than a 'Yes' merely uttered to please, or what is worse, to avoid trouble.

Mary Anne Radmacher: Your informed, “no,” to a particular service allows another to offer their gifted and unreserved, “yes.”

Joy is a Choice - but Not an Easy Choice

Stand up for what you want

We are responsible for the consequences of our choices
