"Strength of character means the ability to overcome resentment against others, to hide hurt feelings, and to forgive quickly."
"Being young means you're still naive. That's why it feels like you're soaring in the sky or sinking beneath the ocean when someone you admire betrays you. Those emotions control your entire life, and can make you lose sight of who you are. By growing older, your heart grows more experienced. You grow one step farther away from being controlled by your feelings and are able to keep from soaring in the sky or sinking to the depths of the ocean. That is what it means to grow older."
