"Character is not only doing the right thing when no one is looking, it’s doing the right thing when everyone is looking. It’s being willing to do the right thing even when it costs more than you want to pay." - Michael Josephson
I believe the way we live our lives and the way we treat other people matter considerably. The virtues I admire, I try to put into personal practice. I value peace, relaxation, love, beauty, nature - but because there is always something valuable that needs doing, I do not engage those as often as I should.
I am attracted most to people I have positive emotions about. Consideration towards others, an attitude of respect, and a smile: these go a long way with me.
