Changing the world is good for those who want their names in books. But being happy, that is for those who write their names in the lives of others, and hold the hearts of others as the treasure most dear.

Character is to become aware of the SELF; live every moment with full conscious. Our biggest enemy is our lack of self control, because of which we become victim of decisions that we regret later; to be able to get control of our senses, we need to lead a life of moderation and control our desires.
The only way to allow our true SELF to emerge is by practicing restrain. Do not allow your senses to delude you overshadow your real character.
Character is demonstrated by our actions. What do your actions say about your character?
