Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

3.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

5.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

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

Faced with crisis, the man of character falls back on himself. He imposes his own stamp of action, takes responsibility for it, makes it his own.
Gaulle, Charles De

16.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

17.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

18.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

19.
Too often the strong, silent man is silent only because he does not know what to say, and is reputed strong only because he has remained silent.
Churchill, Winston

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

25.
It is better for the development of character and contentment to do certain things badly for yourself than to have them done better for you by someone else.

26.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

27.
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

28.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

29.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

30.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

31.
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.
Confucius

32.
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

33.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

34.
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.

Shakespeare, William

40.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

41.
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.

42.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese
