The perks of beeing a wallflower

"But it's like when my doctor told me the story of these two brothers whose dad was a bad alcoholic. One brother grew up to be a successful carpenter who never drank. The other brother ended up being a drinker as bas as his dad was. When they asked the first brother why he didn't drink, he said that after he saw what it did to his father, he could never bring himself to try it. When they asked the other brother, he said that he guessed he learned how to drink on his father's knee. So, I guess we are who we are for a lot of reasons. And maybe  we'll never know most of them. But even if we don't have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from here. We can still do things. And we can try to feel okay about them. "

Fra romanen "The perks of beeing a wallflower" - Stephen Chbosky
