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

The depth and strength of a human character are defined by its moral reserves. People reveal themselves completely only when they are thrown out of the customary conditions of their life, for only then do they have to fall back on their reserves.
Trotsky, Leon

Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

18.

Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

Elihu Burritt

29.
Gross and obscure natures, however decorated, seem impure shambles; but character gives splendor to youth, and awe to wrinkled skin and gray hairs.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

30.
If you create an act, you create a habit. If you create a habit, you create a character. If you create a character, you create a destiny.
Maurois, Andre

31.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

35.
I would rather be adorned by beauty of character than jewels. Jewels are the gift of fortune, while character comes from within.
