If all I'm remembered for is being a good basketball player, then I've done a bad job with the rest of my life.
Thomas, Isiah

4.
Our character...is an omen of our destiny, and the more integrity we have and keep, the simpler and nobler that destiny is likely to be.
George Santayana

5.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

Too often the strong, silent man is silent only because he does not know what to say, and is reputed strong only because he has remained silent.

Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.

Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

Emerson, Ralph Waldo

18.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

19.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

20.
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.

21.
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?
Eliot, George

22.
Honor is the inner garment of the Soul; the first thing put on by it with the flesh, and the last it layeth down at its separation from it.
Akhenaton

23.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

24.
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

25.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

26.
Look, we're all the same; a man is a fourteen-room house --in the bedroom he's asleep with his intelligent wife, in the living-room he's rolling around with some bareass girl, in the library he's paying his taxes, in the yard he's raising tomatoes, and in the cellar he's making a bomb to blow it all up.
Miller, Arthur

27.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

28.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

29.
Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good.
Landers, Ann

30.
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

31.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

Character is a victory, not a gift.
