Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

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
Virgil

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

18.
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

19.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

Proverb, Hebrew

24.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

25.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

26.
A man with a so-called character is often a simple piece of mechanism; he has often only one point of view for the extremely complicated relationships of life.

Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
Abraham Lincoln

We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

29.
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

30.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

36.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

Proverb, Chinese

Miller, Arthur
