"Commitment to others is the stuff character is made of; the power to change the face of things, to create a new future."
~Anonymous


What means character when describing one’s personality?
Does it describe an individual’s charm or nature or perhaps his or her charismatic ability?
I maintain that one’s character is made up of all these and more
It has to do with one’s moral fiber, his reputation whether he or she is or is not mature
A person’s character is more than the dictionary’s definition
Yes, it is about a person’s nature, strength and his or her disposition
But the measure of a person’s character is much deeper than reputation
It is the mark of a person’s ability to delve into the mind and soul of others
To understand the personality and strength of character of his or her sisters and brothers
A person of true and strong character does not dwell solely within his own reputation
He searches others to find and inspire these qualities and help others build on this disposition
True character inspires true character in those who witness these things in you
So, always keep this in mind wherever you go and whatever you may do
