Lubbock, Sir John

We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

4.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

5.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

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

Bonaparte, Napoleon

8.
Gross and obscure natures, however decorated, seem impure shambles; but character gives splendor to youth, and awe to wrinkled skin and gray hairs.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.

Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

17.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

18.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

19.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

20.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

21.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

22.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

23.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

24.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

25.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

26.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

27.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

28.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

29.
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

30.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

31.
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.

32.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

33.
Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconcious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character
Covey, Stephen R.

34.
You can buy a person's time; you can buy their physical presence at a given place; you can even buy a measured number of their skilled muscular motions per hour. But you can not buy enthusiasm... you can not buy loyalty. You can not buy the devotion of hearts, minds, or souls. You must earn these.
Francis, Clarence

35.
Faced with crisis, the man of character falls back on himself. He imposes his own stamp of action, takes responsibility for it, makes it his own.
Gaulle, Charles De

36.
We falsely attribute to men a determined character -- putting together all their yesterdays -- and averaging them -- we presume we know them. Pity the man who has character to support -- it is worse than a large family -- he is the silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

37.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

38.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
Menander

39.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

40.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

Buren, Abigail Van

43.
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

44.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

45.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

46.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

47.
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

48.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

49.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

50.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse
