You must look into people, as well as at them.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)
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
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.
I have only got down on to paper, really, three types of people: the person I think I am, the people who irritate me, and the people I'd like to be.

Peter The Great
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
