This month: The Importance of our Character

One's good character consists of many different traits. Integrity, courage, discipline, vision, compassion, and many others to name a few. They are often a reflection of our personal mindset and composite of our habits. Though some may argue otherwise, character matters.

"Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are." ~ John Wooden

"Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character." ~ Swami Sivananda

"Good character is more to be praised than outstanding talent. Most talents are, to some extent, a gift. Good character, by contrast, is not given to us. We have to build it piece by piece-by thought, choice, courage and determination." ~ John Luther

"The influence of individual character extends from generation to generation." ~ Iain Macleod
