When you know who you are, what you stand for and that all your intentions are forthright, it will not matter what anyone labels you. You walk taller, you act with assurance, you speak with certainty, you carry yourself with dignity, you convey honesty and you embrace all this with humility. Classify that attitude however you like. I know what it really is: giving honor to God by being a reflection of His goodness. Never be ashamed to wear that label proudly. ― Carlos Wallace, "Life Is Not Complicated-You Are: Turning Your Biggest Disappointments Into Your Greatest Blessings"

Ultimately, people with class are outstanding without trying too hard to stand out. - Carlos Wallace "Life Is Not Complicated-You Are: Turning Your Biggest Disappointments Into Your Greatest Blessings"
