A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you, and were helped by you, will remember you when forget-me-nots are withered. Carve your name on hearts, and not on marble
Spurgeon, Charles Haddon
Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good.
I appreciate people who are civil, whether they mean it or not. I think: Be civil. Do not cherish your opinion over my feelings. There's a vanity to candor that isn't really worth it. Be kind.

Elmer G. Letterman
Character development is the aim of education.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.
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.

Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Good character is more to be praised than outstanding talent. Most talents are, to some extent, a gift. Good character, by contrast, is not given to us. We have to build it piece by piece-by thought, choice, courage and determination.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

What you possess in the world will be found at the day of your death to belong to someone else. But what you are will be yours forever.
Dyke, Henry Van
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
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.
The best index to a person's character is (a) how he treats people who can't do him any good, and (b) how he treats people who can't fight back.
