The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua
If I were to try to read, much less answer, all the attacks made on me, this shop might as well be closed for any other business. I do the very best I know how -- the very best I can. And I mean to keep on doing it to the end. If the end brings me out all right, what is said against me will not amount to anything. If the end brings me out all wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.

Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
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?
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

King Jr. Martin Luther
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
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.
Forster, Edward M.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

Michener, James A.
