Character may be manifested in the great moments, but it is made in the small ones.
— Phillips Brooks
Character is formed by doing the thing we are supposed to do, when it should be done, whether we feel like doing it or not.
— Father Flanagan
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
You can easily judge the character of others by how they treat those who can do nothing for them.
— Malcolm Forbes
I believe that character is ultimately more important than competence. Obviously both are important, but character is foundational. All else builds on this cornerstone. In the long run, what we are, our basic character, will take precedence over our skills, our competencies or even the structures and systems we set up.
— Stephen Covey
