Tacitus, Publius Cornelius
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.

A rich man has no need of character.
Character isn't something you were born with and can't change, like your fingerprints. It's something you weren't born with and must take responsibility for forming.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.

Wilson, Woodrow T.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

Parkhurst, Charles H.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

Haliburton, Thomas C.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus
The man who cannot believe in himself cannot believe in anything else. The basis of all integrity and character is whatever faith we have in our own integrity.
Smith, Roy L.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
You can't go around hoping that most people have sterling moral characters. The most you can hope for is that people will pretend that they do.

Mason, John L.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
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.
A man with a so-called character is often a simple piece of mechanism; he has often only one point of view for the extremely complicated relationships of life.
Strindberg, J. August
I appreciate people who are civil, whether they mean it or not. I think: Be civil. Do not cherish your opinion over my feelings. There's a vanity to candor that isn't really worth it. Be kind.
Show me the man you honor, and I will know what kind of a man you are. It shows me what your ideal of manhood is, and what kind of a man you long to be.
Character is victory organized.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Few persons are made of such strong fiber that they will make a costly outlay when surface work will pass as well in the market.
Bounds, E. M.
As fire when thrown into water is cooled down and put out, so also a false accusation when brought against a man of the purest and holiest character, boils over and is at once dissipated, and vanishes and threats of heaven and sea, himself standing unmoved.
Cicero, Marcus T.
