Character is often used to define a person’s integrity, such as he has “upstanding character” or “his character is lacking.” Character is actually a set of behavior traits that define what type of person you are.
Most of us were told as children that all we ever really have is our “name” and that we must protect our reputation and integrity at all costs. I think that most of us still agree with that wise age-old advice.
What really could be worth losing your sense of self as well as your integrity?
Character really does count! In the end it’s one of the few things that matter.
“Character, no circumstance, makes the person.”
— Booker T. Washington
