    This was a nice list. I really liked when it said Men are true students. I think it’s hard to nail down “What a man is” but this is certainly a list of high quality traits a person can have. I think this is more a list of the differences between a child and an adult but I think it has a lot of value showing a guy he might still be a child and have things to work on.
