Define Your Character

“Go without a coat when it’s cold; find out what cold is. Go hungry; keep your existence lean. Wear away the fat, get down to the lean tissue and see what it’s all about. The only time you define your character is when you go without. In times of hardship, you find out what you’re made of and what you’re capable of. If you’re never tested, you’ll never define you character.”

~ Henry Rollins – Musician, February 13, 1961-

Quote

Choose your friends by their character and your socks by their color. Choosing your socks by their character makes no sense, and choosing your friends by their color is unthinkable.

Lao Tzu

Watch your thoughts, they become words.
Watch your words, they become action.
Watch your actions, they become habits.
Watch your habits, they become character.
Watch your character, it becomes your destiny.
