The character of a man is known from his conversations.
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;
Be thou incapable of change in that which is right, and men will rely upon thee. Establish unto thyself principles of action; and see that thou ever act according to them. First know that thy principles are just, and then be thou
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg
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.
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.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius
Sometimes people carry to such perfection the mask they have assumed that in due course they actually become the person they seem.
W. Somerset Maugham
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
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.
