Character

A very fine Man of Character GEORGE WASHINGTON put it best when it comes to Character, “Few men have virtue to withstand the highest bidder.”
“Americanism is a question of principle, of purpose, of idealism, of character. It is not a matter of birthplace or creed or line of descent.”
?€œExcellence is not a singular act, but a habit. You are what you repeatedly do.?€
?€œWatch 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 becomes your destiny.?€
?€œYou can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.?€
?€œReligion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it, you’d have good people doing good things and evil people doing bad things, but for good people to do bad things, it takes religion.?€
?€œEveryone tries to define this thing called Character. It’s not hard. Character is doing what’s right when nobody’s looking.?€
“Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.”
“Everyone has the obligation to ponder well his own specific traits of character. He must also regulate them adequately and not wonder whether someone else’s traits might suit him better. The more definitely his own a man’s character is, the better it fits him.”
“Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.”
“The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.”
“People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.”
“Be thou incapable of change in that which is right, and men will rely upon thee. Establish unto thyself principles of action; and see that thou ever act according to them. First know that thy principles are just, and then be thou.”
“A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you, and were helped by you, will remember you when forget-me-nots are withered. Carve your name on hearts, and not on marble.”
