Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

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

8.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

9.
Strong feelings do not necessarily make a strong character. The strength of a man is to be measured by the power of the feelings he subdues not by the power of those which subdue him.
William Carleton

10.
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.
Beecher, Henry Ward

11.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

12.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

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

14.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

Arran, Earl of

16.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

17.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

18.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

19.
Faced with crisis, the man of character falls back on himself. He imposes his own stamp of action, takes responsibility for it, makes it his own.
Gaulle, Charles De

20.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

21.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

22.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

23.
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

24.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

25.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

26.

Lois McMaster Bujold

27.

Thomas, Isiah

28.
You can't go around hoping that most people have sterling moral characters. The most you can hope for is that people will pretend that they do.
Lebowitz, Fran

29.
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.

30.

Bounds, E. M.

All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

35.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
