Sir Thomas Browne
F. Scott Fitzgerald
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.
Thoughts lead on to purposes; purposes go forth in action; actions form habits; habits decide character; and character fixes our destiny.
Character is higher than intellect. Thinking is the function. Living is the functionary. The stream retreats to its source. A great soul will be strong to live, as well as strong to think.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
...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
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
Nothing great will ever be achieved without great men, and men are great only if they are determined to be so.
Charles De Gaulle
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.
Keep your thoughts positive because your thoughts become your words. Keep your words positive because your words become your behavior. Keep your behavior positive because your behavior becomes your habits. Keep your habits positive because your habits become your values. Keep your values positive because your values become your destiny.
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi

We are judged by our character. People may like or hate us for whom we are. Start by being good to yourself first, in order to set a good example to others.

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
Is being a good frind and showing your chariter
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.
