what is character?

Character is the sum of those qualities of moral excellence which stimulates a person to do the right thing, which is manifested through right and proper actions despite internal or external pressures to the contrary.
Wow. I’ve never read a more articulate description of the word and trait. Fittingly, this description of character comes from the United States Air Force Academy Code of Conduct. If you want words to live by, this might be the right place to start.
 
It’s rare you find someone with such a strong sense of character. If you do, hold on to that acquaintance or friend. Treasure him or her, and strive to follow these words yourself without a second thought.
 
Who or what inspires you to be better than you best?
