What makes the man?

We sometimes make the mistake that the circumstances we go through, the trials of life so to speak, give us character. That circumstances make us who we are.

English: WASHINGTON, BOOKER T. Digitally retou...That is a false way of seeing life. It is who we are, in God and through His grace, that defines us. It is our character, not circumstances, that makes us who we are.

“Character, not circumstances, makes the man.” ~~Booker T. Washington
