A Quote by Lois McMaster Bujold on consequence, action, want, and create

His mother had often said, When you choose an action, you choose the consequences of that action.  She had emphasized the corollary of this axiom even more vehemently: when you desired a consequence you had damned well better take the action that would create it.
