Marden, Orison Swett
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.

Amiel, Henri Frederic
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.

Richter, Jean Paul
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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.
