Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.

The depth and strength of a human character are defined by its moral reserves. People reveal themselves completely only when they are thrown out of the customary conditions of their life, for only then do they have to fall back on their reserves.
Trotsky, Leon

14.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.

Greeley, Horace

To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

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

Confucius
