Sivananda, Sri Swami
Let us not say, every man is the architect of his own fortune; but let us say, every man is the architect of his own character.

The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
You can buy a person's time; you can buy their physical presence at a given place; you can even buy a measured number of their skilled muscular motions per hour. But you can not buy enthusiasm... you can not buy loyalty. You can not buy the devotion of hearts, minds, or souls. You must earn these.

The measure of a man's real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
Macaulay, Thomas B.
Character is victory organized.
Reputation is only a candle, of wavering and uncertain flame, and easily blown out, but it is the light by which the world looks for and finds merit.
Lowell, James Russell
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
