Character reflections

Posted by
Nitin (Mayenne, France) on 15 October 2016 in Plant & Nature.

"Does character develop over time? In novels, of course it does: otherwise there wouldn't be much of a story. But in life? I sometimes wonder. Our attitudes and opinions change, we develop new habits and eccentricities; but that's something different, more like decoration. Perhaps character resembles intelligence, except that character peaks a little later: between twenty and thirty, say. And after that, we're just stuck with what we've got. We're on our own. If so, that would explain a lot of lives, wouldn't it? And also - if this isn't too grand a word - our tragedy."
--
Julian Barnes, The Sense of an Ending

A picture taken last year at Jeju Island, South Korea, where I went for my friends Bret and Becky's wedding. It was a good few days in the company of good friends and nature.

The above quote was taken from a book I am currently reading. Reflections on character, and, as usual, on life itself and of what it turns us into.
