Two elements of character

This is a very inpirational passage so i thought to share it with my close ones.

Strength of character consists of two things-power of will and power of
self-control. Many youth mistake strong, uncontrolled passion for strength of
character, but the truth is that he who is mastered by his passions is a weak
man. The real greattness and nobility of the man is measured by the power of the
feelings that he subdues, not by the power of the feelings that subdue him. The
strongest man is he who, while sensitive to abuse, will yet restrain passion and
forgive his enemies. Such men are true heros.
