Life is less about what you do, and more about how and why you do those things. This is called character.
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired, and success achieved.
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 - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self-respect springs.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses and avoids.
Changing the world is good for those who want their names in books. But being happy, that is for those who write their names in the lives of others, and hold the hearts of others as the treasure most dear.
Orson Scott Card
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.
...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.

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?
