Plautus, Titus Maccius

I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
King Jr. Martin Luther

6.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

Reputation is only a candle, of wavering and uncertain flame, and easily blown out, but it is the light by which the world looks for and finds merit.
Lowell, James Russell

Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

16.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

Good character is more to be praised than outstanding talent. Most talents are, to some extent, a gift. Good character, by contrast, is not given to us. We have to build it piece by piece-by thought, choice, courage and determination.
Luther, John

18.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

19.

Keller, Helen

26.
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

27.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

28.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

29.
Be thou incapable of change in that which is right, and men will rely upon thee. Establish unto thyself principles of action; and see that thou ever act according to them. First know that thy principles are just, and then be thou
Akhenaton

30.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

31.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

32.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

33.
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.

34.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

Spurgeon, Charles Haddon

40.
To be fond of learning is near to wisdom; to practice with vigor is near to benevolence; and to be conscious of shame is near to fortitude. He who knows these three things
Confucius

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

43.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

44.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

45.

46.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

The measure of a man's real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
Macaulay, Thomas B.

49.
We falsely attribute to men a determined character -- putting together all their yesterdays -- and averaging them -- we presume we know them. Pity the man who has character to support -- it is worse than a large family -- he is the silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

50.
I have often thought the best way to define a man's character would be to seek out the particular mental or moral attitude in which, when it comes upon him, he felt himself most deeply and intensely active and alive. At such moments there is a voice inside which speaks and says: This is the real me!.
James, William
