Question of the Day

What are three character traits you strive to have?

Compassion, patience, and self-respect.

Self-respect is maybe not traditionally considered a "character trait," but I've found that a lot of indecency is perpetrated because of the lack thereof—and, crucially, since it's my answer, I am a better person, more honest, more generous, more accountable, when I hold myself in esteem.
