The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

Cicero

Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

23.
Character isn't something you were born with and can't change, like your fingerprints. It's something you weren't born with and must take responsibility for forming.
Rohn, Jim

24.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

25.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

Thomas, Isiah

28.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

29.
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.
James, William

30.
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

31.
Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are.
Wooden, John

32.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

As fire when thrown into water is cooled down and put out, so also a false accusation when brought against a man of the purest and holiest character, boils over and is at once dissipated, and vanishes and threats of heaven and sea, himself standing unmoved.
Cicero, Marcus T.

35.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

36.
Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good.
Landers, Ann

Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

38.
Show me the man you honor, and I will know what kind of a man you are. It shows me what your ideal of manhood is, and what kind of a man you long to be.
Carlyle, Thomas

39.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

40.
Strong feelings do not necessarily make a strong character. The strength of a man is to be measured by the power of the feelings he subdues not by the power of those which subdue him.
William Carleton

41.
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;
