Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you're kind, amazing things will happen.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses and avoids.
The greatest discovery of our generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitudes of mind. As you think, so shall you be.
I shall be telling this with a sigh Somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I, I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
Elmer G. Letterman
Courtesies of a small and trivial character are the ones which strike deepest in the grateful and appreciating heart.

Character is to become aware of the SELF; live every moment with full conscious. Our biggest enemy is our lack of self control, because of which we become victim of decisions that we regret later; to be able to get control of our senses, we need to lead a life of moderation and control our desires.
The only way to allow our true SELF to emerge is by practicing restrain. Do not allow your senses to delude you overshadow your real character.
Character is demonstrated by our actions. What do your actions say about your character?

This one is really awesome, I love it so much!
We need to communicate respectfully with those we strongly disagree with.

Character is doing what's right even when no one's looking. So that way if someone asks who messed this up you can say with a clear conscience that you didn't do it.
