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;
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Reputation is only a candle, of wavering and uncertain flame, and easily blown out, but it is the light by which the world looks for and finds merit.
Lowell, James Russell
I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.

Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.
The best index to a person's character is (a) how he treats people who can't do him any good, and (b) how he treats people who can't fight back.

Ralph Waldo Emerson
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.

Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.
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.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

Ralph Waldo Emerson

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
I have only got down on to paper, really, three types of people: the person I think I am, the people who irritate me, and the people I'd like to be.
Forster, Edward M.

Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.

Bounds, E. M.
It is not what he had, or even what he does which expresses the worth of a man, but what he is.
Amiel, Henri Frederic
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.
They attack the one man with their hate and their shower of weapons. But he is like some rock which stretches into the vast sea and which, exposed to the fury of the winds and beaten against by the waves, endures all the violence

As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
