Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

3.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

4.
They attack the one man with their hate and their shower of weapons. But he is like some rock which stretches into the vast sea and which, exposed to the fury of the winds and beaten against by the waves, endures all the violence
Virgil

8.
A man's character is the reality of himself; his reputation, the opinion others have formed about him; character resides in him, reputation in other people; that is the substance, this is the shadow.

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

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

18.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

19.
Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconcious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character
Covey, Stephen R.

20.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

Confucius

22.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

There is never a better measure of what a person is than what he does when he is absolutely free to choose.
Bulger, William M.

31.
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

32.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

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.
