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

Keller, Helen

4.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

5.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

6.
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.

7.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

9.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

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.

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

I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

16.
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

17.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

23.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

24.
I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
King Jr. Martin Luther

25.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

26.
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

27.
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

28.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

29.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

Confucius

Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.

Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

Robbins, Anthony

We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham
