Only one success in life

"There is only one success, to be able to spend your life in your own way."
- Christopher Morley

This means to feel that you have the ability to make your own choices, rather than having options cast upon you.

It does not mean to have unfettered liberty to do whatever you please without regard for others or their welfare.

It also does not mean that you could live your life recklessly, as that raises an ethical issue. If you must not do anything that risks the life of another person, under penalty of law, then you do not have the right to risk your own life.

A moral issue also arises when you risk your own life because you put at risk the future of those who love you.

Live your life in a way that when you look back over it in your last days you will do so with pride of accomplishment and happiness of achievement.
