A Quote

This quote is somehow similar to the blog that I posted yesterday. In different ways, it shows some properties of a mature person. I like it very much, and I hope you like it too. :)

"It teaches the strong to know when they are weak and the brave to face themselves when they are afraid. To be proud and unbowed in defeat yet humble and gentle in victory. And to master ourselves before we attempt to master others. And to learn to laugh, yet never forget how to weep. And to give the predominance of courage over timidity."

– General Douglas MacArthur, on the virtues of competitive athletics.

    Thanks for your 5 questions, and these points are too hard to me^^. I can only achieve is construcive to others. I don’t know why I always can give helpful advices to others, but cannot help myself, it might be I cannot see myself clearly. I deeply believe there are still many people like me, they cannot understand themselves. And, I found a interesting circumstance, sometimes a person who looks to think deeply and plan carefully, he is just sensitively; and someone who looks open and clear, maybe he just childy. And many others they mature in some aspect, but they are also immature in others aspects. If maturity is not contrast with immaturity, thus people would not looks so complicated.
