I'm not concerned with your liking or disliking me - all I ask is that you respect me as a human being.
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
...all true fame...is to be acquired only by noble deeds and high achievements and the establishment of a character founded upon the principles of truth, uprightness, and inflexible integrity.
Alexander H. Stephens
Character is doing the right thing when nobody's looking. There are too many people who think that the only thing that's right is to get by, and the only thing that's wrong is to get caught.
J. C. Watts
A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you, and were helped by you, will remember you when forget-me-nots have withered. Carve your name on hearts, not on marble.
Charles Hadden Spurgeon
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Strength of a character isn't always about how much you can handle before you break. It’s also about how much you can handle after you've been broken.
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.

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?

Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Your rep is what people think you are, your character is what you are when no one is watching.
This one is really awesome, I love it so much!
We need to communicate respectfully with those we strongly disagree with.
Patrick G., La Quinta, CA
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.
