Character

Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet.  Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.

  7. Amen to that! Great quote.
    I was just having a talk with my daughter the other day on what builds character. If she had a nice easy life, then she wouldn't have any. Good thing she's mine...

  17. But I don't want trial and suffering, Farmchick. Do you have an alternative formula for building character that includes watching football games, taking pictures, hiking and biking, and reading books?
