You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude
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
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 measure of a man's real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
Macaulay, Thomas B.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg
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

Not to be cheered by praise, not to be grieved by blame, but to know thoroughly ones own virtues or powers are the characteristics of an excellent man.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.
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.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good.
An excellent man, like precious metal, is in every way invariable; A villain, like the beams of a balance, is always varying, upwards and downwards, himself his own dungeon.
A man's character is the reality of himself; his reputation, the opinion others have formed about him; character resides in him, reputation in other people; that is the substance, this is the shadow.
Beecher, Henry Ward
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
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
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

Tacitus, Publius Cornelius
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?
