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.

6.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.

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

If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

If all I'm remembered for is being a good basketball player, then I've done a bad job with the rest of my life.
Thomas, Isiah

21.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

22.
Good character is like a rubber ball -- thrown down hard -- it bounces right back. Good reputation is like a crystal ball -- thrown for gain -- shattered and cracked.
Linall Jr. A. L.

23.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.

The hell to be endured hereafter, of which theology tells, is no worse than the hell we make for ourselves in this world by habitually fashioned our characters in the wrong way.
James, William

31.
There is never a better measure of what a person is than what he does when he is absolutely free to choose.

Covey, Stephen R.

36.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

37.

The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

46.
Therefore keep in the midst of life. Do not isolate yourself. Be among men and things, and among troubles, and difficulties, and obstacles.
Drummond, Henry

47.
Look, we're all the same; a man is a fourteen-room house --in the bedroom he's asleep with his intelligent wife, in the living-room he's rolling around with some bareass girl, in the library he's paying his taxes, in the yard he's raising tomatoes, and in the cellar he's making a bomb to blow it all up.
