Richard Greenberg

3.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

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.

The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

13.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

14.
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

15.
I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
King Jr. Martin Luther

Chambers, Oswald

Cicero, Marcus T.

21.
An excellent man, like precious metal, is in every way invariable; A villain, like the beams of a balance, is always varying, upwards and downwards, himself his own dungeon.
Pandita, Saskya

The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

27.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

28.
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

29.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.
