What would you consider to be the TRUE measure of a man? Is it his character alone? How does society measure a man? Is it different in all cultures or does our similarities crosses all cultures.
Please share your thoughts.

love the quote Ms Cama...yes indeed it is how we react that gives us away....power and strength is needed and fortified with those who can walk away and forgive.

Bula Ilaisane...qare ko iko big fan talega nei Martin Luther King...well, me too.

Here's one from Martin Luther King Jnr on the topic:

"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in times of comfort, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy".

So true, when one is accused wrongly, the way he/she reacts is the measure of the person. Whether one tries to beat up the accuser or takes it in slowly and waits for God to do his work is the real test.

I echo the words of both ladies and may I add a line I read some where, "you can measure the character of a person by how he/she treats someone who has been unkind to him/her".

Thank you Ladies. I really appreciate both the personal example of your Dad Mere( love it when a person stands by their words) and the deeper perspective of the teachings of Jesus Christ mentioned by Ami. It is so great to share our insights and experiences on this site. YES character is so important and defining in our lives despite our backgrounds or culture.

I can only define it thru the one role-model in my life.
MY DAD...hes GOOD on his word.
He is never late...and I mean never late..pliz understand I'm not bragging but merely answering your question.
I saw him take care of my Mom until death...Never a word of complain!
I see him support his family & extended families mind you thats why he doesnt understand his kids anymore.
Hes words were if i don't have a BIG bank account I could still survive but if I don't have a Big heart I will surely die...Its God,Family & Friends...
I read this today...Its your attitude that determines your altitude...
This are my thoughts and what a blessing to be raised by a REMARKABLE MAN!
