Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.

Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.

Pandita, Saskya

12.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

24.

He that has light within his own clear breast may sit in the center, and enjoy bright day: But he that hides a dark soul and foul thoughts benighted walks under the mid-day sun;
Milton, John

While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

39.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

40.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

41.
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.

42.
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

Cicero, Marcus T.
