"Character is parenting yourself. It is when you take charge, when you no longer require someone to stand over you and tell you what to do, because now you're telling yourself what to do. There will never be a time in your life when authority and accountability are not needful. The person with character is somebody who becomes accountable to themselves and accountable to truth and principle; somebody who does not require an outside force to govern them, because they govern themselves from within by principle."
"Character is doing right by reflex because of disciplined repetition, but most folks never do anything consistently enough to develop a reflex action or habit in their lives."
