A D,

Again 2 Qs and 2 posts. If the work is to your heart how can you look at the time you spend on it? Tomorrow is always full of promise. The idea you believe in is not just a glow but leading light to make you transit through dark. If each one of us has all these 10 virtues the world would be heaven. So if we can meet these at some high level, it should still be good. Isn't so?

Take care

These are all good! One of the most important is perseverance. It's essential if we are to survive the ups and downs that life throws at us. Another virtue I like is openness. People who are secretive and only share half of what they're thinking or is going on are not to be trusted. I like people who will open their hearts and minds to me, once they get to know me.
