The Crown and Glory of Life is Character
The greatest quality a person can possess is a good character. It is perhaps conforming to this line of thinking that someone once said, “If wealth is lost, nothing is lost, if health is lost something is lost, but if the character is lost everything is lost. “One cannot acquire a good character by sitting idle. One has to work very hard for it. This hard work may entitle foregoing many small pleasures, learning from our mistakes, and training ourselves to discipline our wayward thoughts, actions, and desires. Character building is a continuous process. It starts from the cradle and ends only when one is dead. A good character can be defined as a combination of virtuous habits and principled living, A society and a country is shaped by men and women of character. They are instrumental in building a nation. They are a source of strength for people around them. History is full of people who acquired phenomenal strength of character because they were influenced by the strong character of people like parents and friends around them. Long after a person is dead, people keep him alive in their memories because of the inspiration, a direction given by him to others.
