Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.
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.
Buren, Abigail Van
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius
The hell to be endured hereafter, of which theology tells, is no worse than the hell we make for ourselves in this world by habitually fashioned our characters in the wrong way.
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?

Bovee, Christian Nevell
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.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
It takes a great deal of character strength to apologize quickly out of one's heart rather than out of pity. A person must possess himself and have a deep sense of security in fundamental principles and values in order to genuinely apologize.
Covey, Stephen R.
Character is victory organized.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.

Marden, Orison Swett
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;
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.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude
It is well for the world that in most of us, by the age of thirty, the character has set like plaster, and will never soften again.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

Wilson, Woodrow T.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
