Character is what you are in the dark.

“No one of good character leaves behind a wasted life — whether they die in obscurity or renown. “Character,” wrote the 19th Century evangelist, Dwight Moody, “is what you are in the dark.” Your character is not tested on occasions of public scrutiny or acclaim. It is not tested in moments when the object of your actions is the regard of another. Your character is what you are to yourself, not what you pretend to be to yourself or others. Although human beings often attempt self-delusion, we cannot forever hide the truth about ourselves from ourselves. It will make itself known to us by means of our conscience despite our most strenuous effort to suppress it.”
