I have loved books since before I could read. I'm sure I've taken a lot away from a lot of them. Only one, however, can I think of, really affected how I try to live my life. I have no idea who wrote it. It was a rather forgettable science fiction book published in...the early '80s, I think. I believe it was called Mustang (in reference to the automobile). There was just one short snippet of it that I remember. Two characters were talking and one of them said something like: Everything you do affects the people around you. You have to take responsibility for that.

For some reason, this really seemed to resonate with my 17-year-old self. it's a principle I try to keep in mind. Could be worse. I could have picked up Atlas Shrugged.
