Karr, Alphonse

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.
Howell, Harry

18.
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

Baldwin, Faith

Proverb, Chinese

Eliot, George

28.
Few persons are made of such strong fiber that they will make a costly outlay when surface work will pass as well in the market.
Bounds, E. M.

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

30.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

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.

37.
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
