Measuring

I came across this quote today…

“You can measure the character of a man by the size of the things that make him angry.”

Zing!

If I didn’t know better, I’d think that was a heck of an inconvenient character assessment. You’d have to be out of your mind to measure yourself in a moment of anger or frustration.

Measurements like that could be … well… they might… hmmm… it just doesn’t seem flattering.

  1. Very interesting, and mostly true I think. Reminds me of the quote from my basketball coach at CBC that has hung with me (for 10 years now!), something like “sports don’t build character so much as they reveal it” – I remember thinking “geez from what I’ve seen of myself and others in athletics I hope that’s not true”… but it probably is.
