Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

23.
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

Dyke, Henry Van

The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

It is well for the world that in most of us, by the age of thirty, the character has set like plaster, and will never soften again.
James, William

Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.

Chesterfield, Lord

31.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.

35.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

36.
Character isn't something you were born with and can't change, like your fingerprints. It's something you weren't born with and must take responsibility for forming.
