While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
A man's character is his fate.
Character is victory organized.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
We falsely attribute to men a determined character -- putting together all their yesterdays -- and averaging them -- we presume we know them. Pity the man who has character to support -- it is worse than a large family -- he is the silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
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.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
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.

Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.
Character is our destiny.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
