Life is less about what you do, and more about how and why you do those things. This is called character.
With faith, discipline and selfless devotion to duty, there is nothing worthwhile that you cannot achieve.
Muhammad Ali Jinnah
Love the moment. Flowers grow out of dark moments. Therefore, each moment is vital. It affects the whole. Life is a succession of such moments and to live each, is to succeed.
Sister Mary Corita Kent
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.
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
Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.

I'm sure most people think (at least one of) their parents is/was a hero; I think my Dad was. A talented man, unassuming, creative, inventive, and unappreciated. I wish he was alive today, now that I am old enough to treasure him. One motto he taught me was "You're about as happy as you make up your mind to 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?
Teresa, Dalton, GA

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.
