Richards, Mary Caroline
Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character.
Sivananda, Sri Swami
Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconcious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character

Peter The Great
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
