At this present moment, my heart feel so full. Full of gratitude and full of love. Certainly a great place to be, and I am so thankful.
As you may know, I am a diverse person. Not in doing, but in talking, discussion and conversation. I would like to know a little about a lot of topics. I guess in our world, that is the way to go. There will be always space for specialists, but if you could gain loads of experience and loads of knowledge in different fields, I believe that will be unbelievably beneficial.
You’re probably so sick of hearing this, but I am going to take a different route once again. I am going to list my most favorite quotes ever. Not in any chronological order.
And with every quote I am going to state the characteristic it speaks for. Also, note that each characteristic is one in which I deeply believe in and thus the favoritism in the relevant quote.
Quote Number One (Living for Other people)
“I don’t aspire to make a living I aspire to make a difference” – Denzel washington
Quote Number Two (Personal Character)
“Who you are speaks so loud that I can’t hear what you are saying” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Quote Number Three (Living in Excellence, Personal Habits)
“Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.” – Aristotle
Quote Number Four (Living with honor)
“Be the change you would like to see in the world” – Mahatma Gandhi
Quote Number Five (Plan your life to perfection)
” Poor planning on your side does not cause an emergency in mine” – Bob Carter
Quote Number Six (Resiliency)
In a speech titled “Citizenship in a Republic” given by Theodore Roosevelt at the Sorbonne in Paris, France, on April 23, 1910, he said the following:
“It’s not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because no effort is without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place will never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
Quote Number Seven (Commitment)
“But for everyone, surely, what we have gone through in this period — I am addressing myself to the School — surely from this period of ten months this is the lesson: never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never-in nothing, great or small, large or petty — never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense”
In summary, the character traits list as follows:
- Living for other people
- Personal Character Development
- Excellence and personal habits
- Living with Honor
- Personal Planning
