Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.

Smith, Roy L.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.

Reynolds, Sir Joshua
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell
It is better for the development of character and contentment to do certain things badly for yourself than to have them done better for you by someone else.
If I were to try to read, much less answer, all the attacks made on me, this shop might as well be closed for any other business. I do the very best I know how -- the very best I can. And I mean to keep on doing it to the end. If the end brings me out all right, what is said against me will not amount to anything. If the end brings me out all wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.
Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.
Faced with crisis, the man of character falls back on himself. He imposes his own stamp of action, takes responsibility for it, makes it his own.

Everyone has the obligation to ponder well his own specific traits of character. He must also regulate them adequately and not wonder whether someone else's traits might suit him better. The more definitely his own a man's character is, the better it fits him.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.
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
