Character

That which we call character is a reserved force which acts directly by presence, and without means. It is conceived of as a certain undemonstrable force, a familiar or genius, by whose impulses the man is guided, but whose counsels he cannot impart.
- Emerson, Ralph Waldo

The man who cannot believe in himself cannot believe in anything else. The basis of all integrity and character is whatever faith we have in our own integrity.
Smith, Roy L.

6.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.

There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

14.
Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconcious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character
Covey, Stephen R.

15.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

16.
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.
Francis, Clarence

17.
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;
Milton, John

18.
Character isn't something you were born with and can't change, like your fingerprints. It's something you weren't born with and must take responsibility for forming.
Rohn, Jim

19.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

20.
Everyone has the obligation to ponder well his own specific traits of character. He must also regulate them adequately and not wonder whether someone else's traits might suit him better. The more definitely his own a man's character is, the better it fits him.
Cicero

21.
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

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.
William Carleton

23.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

28.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

29.
There is never a better measure of what a person is than what he does when he is absolutely free to choose.
Bulger, William M.

30.
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!.
James, William

31.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

32.
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

33.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

Royal, Darrell

35.
Be thou incapable of change in that which is right, and men will rely upon thee. Establish unto thyself principles of action; and see that thou ever act according to them. First know that thy principles are just, and then be thou
Akhenaton

36.
Too often the strong, silent man is silent only because he does not know what to say, and is reputed strong only because he has remained silent.
Churchill, Winston

37.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

38.

Honor is the inner garment of the Soul; the first thing put on by it with the flesh, and the last it layeth down at its separation from it.
Akhenaton

You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
