Ralph Waldo Emerson
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett
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.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
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.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
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
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
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.
It is better for the development of character and contentment to do certain things badly for yourself than to have them done better for you by someone else.

Elmer G. Letterman
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.

Covey, Stephen R.
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!.
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;
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
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.
You can buy a person's time; you can buy their physical presence at a given place; you can even buy a measured number of their skilled muscular motions per hour. But you can not buy enthusiasm... you can not buy loyalty. You can not buy the devotion of hearts, minds, or souls. You must earn these.
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
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
During my eighty-seven years, I have witnessed a whole succession of technological revolutions. But none of them has done away with the need for character in the individual or the ability to think.
Baruch, Bernard M.
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?
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

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
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.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.
Strong feelings do not necessarily make a strong character. The strength of a man is to be measured by the power of the feelings he subdues not by the power of those which subdue him.
