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

2.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character.
Sivananda, Sri Swami

4.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

Pandita, Saskya

9.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

Richard Greenberg

11.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

They attack the one man with their hate and their shower of weapons. But he is like some rock which stretches into the vast sea and which, exposed to the fury of the winds and beaten against by the waves, endures all the violence
Virgil

13.
Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
Abraham Lincoln

15.
There is never a better measure of what a person is than what he does when he is absolutely free to choose.
Bulger, William M.

16.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

17.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

18.
Good character is like a rubber ball -- thrown down hard -- it bounces right back. Good reputation is like a crystal ball -- thrown for gain -- shattered and cracked.
Linall Jr. A. L.

19.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

20.
A man with a so-called character is often a simple piece of mechanism; he has often only one point of view for the extremely complicated relationships of life.
Strindberg, J. August

21.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

22.
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.
Maurois, Andre

23.
Everyone has the obligation to ponder well his own specific traits of character. He must also regulate them adequately and not wonder whether someone else's traits might suit him better. The more definitely his own a man's character is, the better it fits him.
Cicero

24.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

25.

Beecher, Henry Ward

27.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

28.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

29.
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

30.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
