Ralph Waldo Emerson
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.

Amiel, Henri Frederic
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

That which we call character is a reserved force which acts directly by presence, and without means. It is conceived of as a certain undemonstrable force, a familiar or genius, by whose impulses the man is guided, but whose counsels he cannot impart.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.
Sometimes people carry to such perfection the mask they have assumed that in due course they actually become the person they seem.
W. Somerset Maugham
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.

Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David
As fire when thrown into water is cooled down and put out, so also a false accusation when brought against a man of the purest and holiest character, boils over and is at once dissipated, and vanishes and threats of heaven and sea, himself standing unmoved.
Cicero, Marcus T.
He that has light within his own clear breast may sit in the center, and enjoy bright day: But he that hides a dark soul and foul thoughts benighted walks under the mid-day sun;
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.
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.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.
It takes a great deal of character strength to apologize quickly out of one's heart rather than out of pity. A person must possess himself and have a deep sense of security in fundamental principles and values in order to genuinely apologize.
Covey, Stephen R.
No artist work is so high, so noble, so grand, so enduring, so important for all time, as the making of character in a child.

Arran, Earl of
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
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!.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell
