“Remember the words to this Tom Petty song: “Well, I know what’s right. I got just one life in a world that keeps on pushing me around, but I’ll stand my ground…and I won’t back down.” That’s character. More than a few people have forgotten what character is, and they act accordingly. They will do anything to bring people of character down so they’ll feel better about themselves. When you know who you are and where you came from, there is no getting pushed around. I am not talking about armed conflict, but rather human conduct. Don’t play games with people, and don’t get involved with people who do. Majoring in minor things keeps you small. Majoring in major things technically makes you not only a…major…but also a person of high moral character. And that beats mind games every single time.”
John St. Augustine, in “Living an Uncommon Life”
