Sir Winston Churchill
Nothing great will ever be achieved without great men, and men are great only if they are determined to be so.
Charles De Gaulle
Happiness is inward, and not outward; and so, it does not depend on what we have, but on what we are.
Henry van Dyke
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.
Character, the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life, is the source from which self-respect springs.
Early in life I had to choose between honest arrogance and hypocritical humility. I chose honest arrogance and have seen no occasion to change.
Frank Lloyd Wright

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?
Teresa, Dalton, GA

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.
