Character

- Strindberg, J. August

Crisp, Quentin

Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconcious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character
Covey, Stephen R.

22.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

Milton, John

If the end brings me out all wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.
Lincoln, Abraham

49.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie
