Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

2.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

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

The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

My father told me that if you saw a man in a Rolls Royce you could be sure he was not a gentleman unless he was the chauffeur.
Arran, Earl of

Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

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.

Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

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

How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

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

15.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

16.
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;
Milton, John

17.
For character too is a process and an unfolding... among our valued friends is there not someone or other who is a little too self confident and disdainful; whose distinguished mind is a little spotted with commonness; who is a little pinched here and protuberant there with native prejudices; or whose better energies are liable to lapse down the wrong channel under the influence of transient solicitations?
Eliot, George

18.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

King Jr. Martin Luther

20.
During my eighty-seven years, I have witnessed a whole succession of technological revolutions. But none of them has done away with the need for character in the individual or the ability to think.
Baruch, Bernard M.

A man with a so-called character is often a simple piece of mechanism; he has often only one point of view for the extremely complicated relationships of life.
Strindberg, J. August

22.
Too often the strong, silent man is silent only because he does not know what to say, and is reputed strong only because he has remained silent.
Churchill, Winston

23.
It is better for the development of character and contentment to do certain things badly for yourself than to have them done better for you by someone else.

24.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

25.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

26.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

27.
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

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.
James, William

31.
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.
Pandita, Saskya

32.
Honor is the inner garment of the Soul; the first thing put on by it with the flesh, and the last it layeth down at its separation from it.
Akhenaton

33.
If I were to try to read, much less answer, all the attacks made on me, this shop might as well be closed for any other business. I do the very best I know how -- the very best I can. And I mean to keep on doing it to the end. If the end brings me out all right, what is said against me will not amount to anything. If the end brings me out all wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.
Lincoln, Abraham

34.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

35.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

36.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

37.
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

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

You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

40.
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

41.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

42.
It is not what he had, or even what he does which expresses the worth of a man, but what he is.
Amiel, Henri Frederic

43.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

44.
Property may be destroyed and money may lose its purchasing power; but, character, health, knowledge and good judgment will always be in demand under all conditions.
Babson, Roger

45.
Good character is more to be praised than outstanding talent. Most talents are, to some extent, a gift. Good character, by contrast, is not given to us. We have to build it piece by piece-by thought, choice, courage and determination.
Luther, John

46.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

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

48.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

49.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

50.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.
