Beecher, Henry Ward
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

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.
Dyke, Henry Van

Haliburton, Thomas C.
It is not what he had, or even what he does which expresses the worth of a man, but what he is.
Amiel, Henri Frederic
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
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.
Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character.
Sivananda, Sri Swami
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus
It is well for the world that in most of us, by the age of thirty, the character has set like plaster, and will never soften again.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Show me the man you honor, and I will know what kind of a man you are. It shows me what your ideal of manhood is, and what kind of a man you long to be.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul
Good character is like a rubber ball -- thrown down hard -- it bounces right back. Good reputation is like a crystal ball -- thrown for gain -- shattered and cracked.
Linall Jr. A. L.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.

Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
