“Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved.”
-Helen Keller, 1938
Everything that we have gone through in our lives has come to shape our character. How we assimilate these experiences into our personality determines the strength of our character. Life is not easy – and it’s not boring! Every day offers us up opportunities to learn and grow and develop into the person we aspire to be.
