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-

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.
