3.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.

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

9.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

Akhenaton

14.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

15.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

16.
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.
Miller, Arthur

17.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

18.

Thomas, John M.

19.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

The depth and strength of a human character are defined by its moral reserves. People reveal themselves completely only when they are thrown out of the customary conditions of their life, for only then do they have to fall back on their reserves.
Trotsky, Leon

21.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

22.
Few persons are made of such strong fiber that they will make a costly outlay when surface work will pass as well in the market.
Bounds, E. M.

23.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

24.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

25.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.

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

27.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

28.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

29.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

30.
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.

31.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

32.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

33.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

If I were to try to read, much less answer, all the attacks made on me, this shop might as well be closed for any other business. I do the very best I know how -- the very best I can. And I mean to keep on doing it to the end. If the end brings me out all right, what is said against me will not amount to anything. If the end brings me out all wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.
Lincoln, Abraham

35.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.

Hay, Colin

44.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix
