People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

Confucius

17.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

18.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.

21.
Testimony is like an arrow shot from a long bow and the force of it depends on the strength of the arm from which it was shot. Argument is like a bullet fired from a gun and has equal force even when issued from a child.

22.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

23.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides
