  1. Our Character
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    Not built of stone, nor carved in gold,
    A thing unseen, a story told,
    It whispers, yet speaks so loud,
    Our character, a rising cloud.

    It isn't words, nor empty praise,
    But choices made through all our days.
    The helping hand, the honest tongue,
    The kindness shown, where wrongs were sung.

    In quiet strength, in actions bold,
    The tapestry of character unfolds.
    The dreams we chase, the tears we cry,
    The battles fought, the reasons why.

    For deep within, a compass lies,
    That guides our steps beneath the skies.
    It steers us clear from shallow ground,
    Where fleeting trends and doubts are found.

    So let your compass ever guide,
    With courage fierce, and heart confide.
    For in each choice, both big and small,
    Your character will stand up tall.

    Leave footprints deep, a legacy,
    A testament to who you'll be.
    For character, a guiding light,
    Will forever burn, ever so bright.

  2. 	Positive character traits are something you can and should develop...traits like love or caring, respect for life, honesty or trustworthiness, responsibility, justice, and fairness. Barbara A. Lewis

  3. Our Character Is Show
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    Through action firm and what we do,
    Our character is shown true and true.
    Not swayed by imitation or fleeting emotion,
    But forged through honesty and devotion.

    By doing, not by words or mere suggestion,
    We build a foundation of true distinction.
    With steady hands and unwavering will,
    Our character is revealed through deeds that fulfill.

  4. "It’s not hard to make decisions
    when you know what your values are."
    Roy Disney

  5. We Do Reveal
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    In the life, what we do reveals,
    How slight is the blemish, how much it conceals.
    A drop of dark ink in a sea of clear hue,
    Taints the pristine, leaving a mark that grew.

    My dear friend, remember the choices you make,
    For in every action, your character's at stake.
    In the first whispered falsehood, how you spend your days,
    Your character is shown in many ways.

    Let your integrity shine, a light so bright,
    In words and  deeds, let your character take flight.
    For in every decision, in each path that you choose,
    Your true self emerges, by the action you infuse.

  6. Character is doing what you don't want to do but know you should do.  Joyce Meyer

  7. The Purpose
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    The purpose of life is clear to see,
    To learn and grow, live our values and be;
    Life's trials we all know,
    But character formed with love will flow.

    It takes courage and much grit,
    To discover your authentic fit;
    Compassion to others is a key,
    Build a character others will see.

  8. The Life You Lead
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    In life, our beliefs do guide,
    They determine the paths where we shall reside.
    For character defines our essence true,
    We can make a difference as we journey through.

    With noble virtues as our guiding light,
    Our character shows both day and night.
    So choose your actions with care and heed,
    As your character will determine the life you lead.

  9. 	Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing. Abraham Lincoln

    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    In hearts where kindest virtues intertwine,
    Strength is found in character refined.
    Goodness, a light in the darkest night,
    Shining with a selfless, quiet might.

    Loving-kindness, like a gentle hand,
