“Am I Rhinoceros or a cow?”
“Rhinoceroses charge with singleness of purpose. All of your energies are directed towards the attainment of your one burning desire”
In this instance I would I would say I was a rhinoceros. I always put 100% into the things I take part in, whether it is education or sports and hobbies. I feel there is no point taking part in an activity without the sole intention of doing it well and succeeding.

“Cows remain cows because they have no discipline. They have no control over all the bad habits which make them a cow.”
With this quote I would love to say I was a Rhino and that I was far from being a cow, but the truth is it isn’t entirely black and white. I am fairly disciplined in a
