“There are two kinds of pain when it comes to our daily conduct. There’s the pain of self 
-disciplineand the pain of regret. Many people avoid the pain of self-
discipline because it’s the easy thing to
do. The pain of self-discipline is momentary but the pay-
off is long lasting.”
“Whoever loves
discipline, loves knowledge, but he who hates corre

 —his character.‖
“Everyone has the opportunity to make choices based on truth, integrity, responsibility,
and loyalty 
all of which are necessary to 
develop and maintain character.” 
―Character is always lost when ideals are sacrificed for conformity and popularity.‖
“Swearing is a device for making ignorance audible.” 
―If you can’t explain it to your mother or your grandmother, don’t do it.‖
“By c
onstant self-discipline and self
control you can develop greatness of character.” 
―Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Character is what you really are.Reputation is just what people say your are.‖
