Nothing great will ever be achieved without great men, and men are great only if they are determined to be so.
Charles De Gaulle
Life is not the way it is supposed to be. It is the way it is. The way you cope with it is what makes the difference.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you're kind, amazing things will happen.
The greatest discovery of our generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitudes of mind. As you think, so shall you be.
Henry David Thoreau
Character wants room; must not be crowded on by persons, nor be judged from glimpses got in the press of affairs, or on few occasions. It needs perspective, as a great building.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
...there are persons who seem to have overcome obstacles and by character and perseverance to have risen to the top. But we have no record of the numbers of able persons who fall by the wayside, persons who, with enough encouragement and opportunity, might make great contributions.

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?

We need to communicate respectfully with those we strongly disagree with.
