We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.
