There can be no failure to a man who has not lost his courage, his character, his self respect, or his self-confidence. He is still a King.
Orison Swett Marden
Character may be manifested in the great moments, but it is made in the small ones.
The discipline you learn and character you build from setting and achieving a goal can be more valuable than the achievement of the goal itself.
A man's true character comes out when he's drunk.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Character is power.
Booker T. Washington

John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
