The discipline you learn and character you build from setting and achieving a goal can be more valuable than the achievement of the goal itself.
Our ability to handle life's challenges is a measure of our strength of character.
A man's true character comes out when he's drunk.

Every single job is a challenge. You are walking into a new set, a new character, creating a world and trying to get comfortable to do your best work.
For me it's always about first impressions. I trust my instincts. I love to prepare if it's something that requires training. But I don't like to prepare the psychology too much. I enjoy the psychology of the character but I work better from a first impression.

Louis C. K.

And because of this sensibility, we come to the European Union with a frame of mind that is more practical than emotional.
It's always difficult to say goodbye, especially when one has spent a long time - literally years, in the case of a series - inside a character or two, suffering and celebrating with them.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
John F. Kennedy
