What Is Character?


Abraham Lincoln said, “Reputation is the shadow. Character is the tree.“ Our character is much more than just our reputation, what we try to display for others to see.  It is who we are even when no one is watching. Having a Good Character means doing the right thing just because it is right to do what is right.

Definitions:  

“The mental and moral qualities distinctive to an individual.” Another says it is “the complex of mental and ethical traits marking a person.” In still another dictionary, character is said to be “the stable and distinctive qualities built into an individual’s life which determine his or her response regardless of circumstances.”

Our Character Is What Determines How We Respond to the Situations and Circumstances of Life
