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

Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
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.

If the end brings me out all wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
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

Thoreau, Henry David

Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David
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.
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.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.
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.
Let us not say, every man is the architect of his own fortune; but let us say, every man is the architect of his own character.
Boardman, George D.

A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
It is not what he had, or even what he does which expresses the worth of a man, but what he is.
Amiel, Henri Frederic

Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
