The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

20.
As fire when thrown into water is cooled down and put out, so also a false accusation when brought against a man of the purest and holiest character, boils over and is at once dissipated, and vanishes and threats of heaven and sea, himself standing unmoved.
Cicero, Marcus T.

Beecher, Henry Ward

25.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

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

27.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

28.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

29.
Gross and obscure natures, however decorated, seem impure shambles; but character gives splendor to youth, and awe to wrinkled skin and gray hairs.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

Confucius

33.
Show me the man you honor, and I will know what kind of a man you are. It shows me what your ideal of manhood is, and what kind of a man you long to be.
Carlyle, Thomas

Virgil

35.
Good character is more to be praised than outstanding talent. Most talents are, to some extent, a gift. Good character, by contrast, is not given to us. We have to build it piece by piece-by thought, choice, courage and determination.
Luther, John

36.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.

I appreciate people who are civil, whether they mean it or not. I think: Be civil. Do not cherish your opinion over my feelings. There's a vanity to candor that isn't really worth it. Be kind.
Richard Greenberg

39.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

40.
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?
Eliot, George

41.
Faced with crisis, the man of character falls back on himself. He imposes his own stamp of action, takes responsibility for it, makes it his own.
Gaulle, Charles De

42.
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.

43.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

44.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

45.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

46.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

47.
It is better for the development of character and contentment to do certain things badly for yourself than to have them done better for you by someone else.

It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur
