If we can enthusiastically imagine ‘doing it’ or ‘having it’ then in all likelihood we will. Our thoughts, feelings and behaviour naturally move towards that which we vividly believe is true. That is the secret. The wonderful mystery of how we make ‘it’ so.
~ Judit e. Szabo

~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Of course genes can’t pull the levers of our behavior directly.
But they affect the wiring and workings of the brain, and the brain is the seat of our drives, temperaments and patterns of thought.
Each of us is dealt a unique hand of tastes and aptitudes, like curiosity, ambition, empathy, a thirst for novelty or for security, a comfort level with the social or the mechanical or the abstract.
Some opportunities we come across click with our constitutions and set us along a path in life.
~ Steven Pinker
