Straight to the Point

“Take responsibility. One of the things that saddens me the most about my
people is fathers that don’t take care of their sons and daughters. And
you can’t blame that on The Man or getting frisked. Take
responsibility. Look in the mirror and say, “What can I do better?”
There is opportunity; you can make it. Whatever it is that you choose,
be the best at it. You have an African-American president. You can do
it. But take responsibility. Put your slippers way under your bed so
when you get up in the morning, you have to get on your knees to find
them. And while you’re down there, start your day with prayer. Ask for
wisdom. Ask for understanding. I’m not telling you what religion to be,
but work on your spirit. You know, mind, body, and spirit. Imagine—work
the brain muscle. Keep the body in tune—it’s your temple. All things in
moderation. Continue to search. That’s the best part of life for
me—continue to try to be the best man.” -Denzel Washington
