A Quote by Sri Chinmoy on character

Among the fearless soldiers that fight for your victory in life, character has no equal.  

Character is the colossal hope of human improvement within and without.
Character is blazing sunshine in the soul’s abode, the body.       

A perfect society is built upon mutual trust. Character is the source of that trust.            

Character is just what we inwardly are and outwardly do.         

The secret of inner success is constancy to our highest character.          

Sri Chinmoy

A Quote by Kent Nerburn on friendship and character

Friendship is held to be the severest test of character.  It is easy, we think, to be loyal to family and clan, whose blood is in our own veins.  Love between man and woman is founded on the mating instinct and is not free from desire and self seeking.  But to have a friend, and to be true under any and all trials, is the mark of a man!

A Quote by Malcolm Gladwell on character and context

Character, then, isn't what we think it is or, rather, what we want it to be. It isn't a stable, easily identifiable set of closely related traits, and it only seems that way because of a glitch in the way our brains are organized. Character is more like a bundle of habits and tendencies and interests, loosely bound together and dependent, at certain times, on circumstance and context.

A Quote by Michael Josephson on challenge, character, courage, life, needs, people, and weakness

Ordinary people, even weak people, can do extraordinary things through temporary courage generated by a situation. But the person of character does not need the situation to generate his courage. It is a part of his being and a standard approach to all life's challenges.

A Quote by Heraclitus on character, choice, colors, contentment, day, destiny, guidance, integrity, principles, and soul

The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way.

Heraclitus (c.540 - c.475 BC)
