Examples of cannot in a Sentence

  1. H.W. Mann:

    Ultimately there is no one else responsible for self. Even if we wanted them to be, even if they were willing and knew exactly how. They are not in our brains and therefore they cannot think for us. That responsibility is ours and ours alone. Once we accept responsibility for self our lives change. We are no longer victims. We take back our power. Everything always goes back to awareness, presence, being conscious and in the flow of the universe. Through awareness we take responsibility for self, create the life of our dreams, and influence the world in a positive way.
