Part 2 The Foundation of All Good Relationship

A good character is something you make for yourself. It cannot be inherited from parents. It cannot be created by having extraordinary advantages. It isn’t a gift of birth, wealth, talents or station. It is a result of your own endeavour. It is the reward that comes from living good principles and manifesting a virtuous and honourable life”. L Tom Perry

In BLOG 11th October, we discerned that Personality (Behaviour) and Character (Moral Code) are not the same thing; and that Integrity is the foundation of Good Character.
