Parents can only give good advice or put [their children] on the right path, but the final forming of a person's character lies in their own hands.
No man can tell whether he is rich or poor by turning to his ledger. It is the heart that makes a man rich. He is rich according to what he is, not according to what he has.
Henry Ward Beecher
Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
Nothing great will ever be achieved without great men, and men are great only if they are determined to be so.
Charles De Gaulle
Sir Thomas Browne
Watch your thoughts; for they become words. Watch your words; for they become actions. Watch your actions; for they become habits. Watch your habits; for they become character. Watch your character for it will become your destiny.
Extend to each person, no matter how trivial the contact, all the care and kindness and understanding and love that you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again.
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.
Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.

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.

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.
