It is your character, and your character alone, that will make your life happy or unhappy.  – John McCain

It is your character, and your character alone, that will make your life happy or unhappy.  – John McCain

Each of us know people who strive to be happy through acquisition of material things; we experience people who compromise their values to achieve temporary success.  At the end of the day, true happiness can only be achieved by being true to our values.  Life is about relationships; it is based on the care, love, and service to others.

Don’t compromise your character for the short term win or for the instant gratification. We all make mistakes – and we all learn from them – but be steadfast to your character and principles above all else.
