Courage is riding the sharper edge of fear and not letting yourself get cut.
Character determines whether we take our own “trash” out on the curb every morning or allow it to accumulate and dump the excess in our neighbor’s yard.
We cannot give a fraction of ourselves to others and accuse the world of knowing so little about us.
The greatest frustration of all arises from the false belief that others intend to frustrate us. Because we then hit the “off” switch as a defense mechanism and frustrate ourselves.
