"You must have control of the authorship of your own destiny. The pen that writes your life story must be held in your own hand."
M.Torres

Con

I am interested in seeing how Pro will present his argument. In a PM, we discussed he would be arguing for the notion that all of what happens in your life depends on how you want them to happen.

I leave it to Pro to begin this debate, and as Con, will refute his points in order to negate his assertion.

I prefer to have my life's story written with a calligraphy brush held between my toes.

You should argue that one's life story should not be written at all and should instead be typed.

Can I argue that one's life story should be written with a pencil instead?
