Plautus, Titus Maccius
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
The superior man will watch over himself when he is alone. He examines his heart that there may be nothing wrong there, and that he may have no cause of dissatisfaction with himself.
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.

Lowell, James Russell
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.

What you possess in the world will be found at the day of your death to belong to someone else. But what you are will be yours forever.
