Some outstanding quotes  
"Character is the ability to carry out a decision after the emotion of making that decision has passed." - Hyrum W. Smith



Thank you, vaxhacker! Mentioning him was good timing; my dad and I were just discussing Bob Moawad on Facebook last night :)

And having looked up Hyrum - the creator of the Franklin planner, an LDS leader and an author - the titles of one of his books also makes a great standalone quote:

"Pain is inevitable, misery is optional." - Hyrum W. Smith

Eleanor Roosevelt and Pema Chödrön have said similar things though perhaps not so eloquently.
