„You cannot blame apartheid, your parents, your circumstances, because you are not your circumstances. You are your possibilities. If you know that, you can do anything.“

—  Oprah Winfrey American businesswoman, talk show host, actress, producer, and philanthropist 1954

O Magazine (January 2007), pages 160 & 217
Contexto: What I learned at a very early age was that I was responsible for my life. And as I became more spiritually conscious, I learned that we all are responsible for ourselves, that you create your own reality by the way you think and therefore act. You cannot blame apartheid, your parents, your circumstances, because you are not your circumstances. You are your possibilities. If you know that, you can do anything.

„In ancient Rome, the gladiators went into the arena with these words on their lips: let me win, but if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt. Today, all of you young athletes are in the arena. Many of you will win. But even more important, I know you will be brave and bring credit to your parents and to your country. Let us begin the Olympics, thank you.“

„You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn.“

—  Lois McMaster Bujold, Vorkosigan Saga

Vorkosigan Saga, A Civil Campaign (1999)
Contexto: You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn. It's a sort of entailment. Or if you don't have children of the body, it's left as a debt to your common humanity. Or to your God, if you possess or are possessed by one.
