"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February
Do you think one can change or choose his personalities, or charaters?
Some people say one's personalities or characters are designed in DNA.
If you follow this theory, it may become really difficult for someone to change his/her characters.
Some people say one's personalities or characters are learned through experiences.
If you follow this theory, you may have a better chance of changing your characters.
Some people say one's personalities or characters are other word for choices, and since people can choose solely by his/her own will, one's personalities or characters are a matter of decision.
In this case, you are 100% sure of designing your characters. In other word, you are 100% responsible of how you feel and what you do.
A friend of mine sent me this question via email this morning, and I thought this would be a good topic for discussion.
