Pandita, Saskya

2.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

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

Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

15.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

16.
I have only got down on to paper, really, three types of people: the person I think I am, the people who irritate me, and the people I'd like to be.
Forster, Edward M.

17.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

18.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

19.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

20.
I have often thought the best way to define a man's character would be to seek out the particular mental or moral attitude in which, when it comes upon him, he felt himself most deeply and intensely active and alive. At such moments there is a voice inside which speaks and says: This is the real me!.
James, William

21.
Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are.
Wooden, John

Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

23.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

24.
Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good.
Landers, Ann

25.
The man who cannot believe in himself cannot believe in anything else. The basis of all integrity and character is whatever faith we have in our own integrity.
Smith, Roy L.

26.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

27.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

28.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

29.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

30.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

31.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

32.
For character too is a process and an unfolding... among our valued friends is there not someone or other who is a little too self confident and disdainful; whose distinguished mind is a little spotted with commonness; who is a little pinched here and protuberant there with native prejudices; or whose better energies are liable to lapse down the wrong channel under the influence of transient solicitations?
Eliot, George

33.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse
