    Character is what you do when nobody is looking.

    Character is everything. It says who you are and defines the actions and/or decisions you make - how you live your life. It defines you as a person and whether you are loved, trusted and respected or whether you are untrustworthy, disrespected, and loathed by others.

    If I may steal from Justice Potter Stewart...

    It's hard to define, but I know it when I see it.
