Michener, James A.

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

35.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

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

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

48.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.
