Thoreau, Henry David

30.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

31.
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.
Miller, Arthur

32.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

33.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

34.

35.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

36.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

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

38.
Let us not say, every man is the architect of his own fortune; but let us say, every man is the architect of his own character.

Virgil

50.
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.
