There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.

Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

An excellent man, like precious metal, is in every way invariable; A villain, like the beams of a balance, is always varying, upwards and downwards, himself his own dungeon.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
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.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.
Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.

The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.
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?
Testimony is like an arrow shot from a long bow and the force of it depends on the strength of the arm from which it was shot. Argument is like a bullet fired from a gun and has equal force even when issued from a child.
