Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

No artist work is so high, so noble, so grand, so enduring, so important for all time, as the making of character in a child.
Cushman, Charlotte Saunders

Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

8.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.

14.
If you create an act, you create a habit. If you create a habit, you create a character. If you create a character, you create a destiny.
Maurois, Andre

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

16.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

17.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

18.

Confucius

19.
He that has light within his own clear breast may sit in the center, and enjoy bright day: But he that hides a dark soul and foul thoughts benighted walks under the mid-day sun;
Milton, John

20.
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

21.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

22.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

23.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

24.
If all I'm remembered for is being a good basketball player, then I've done a bad job with the rest of my life.
Thomas, Isiah

25.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

26.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

27.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

28.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

29.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

30.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

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.
James, William

Hall, Manly

33.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

34.
Testimony is like an arrow shot from a long bow and the force of it depends on the strength of the arm from which it was shot. Argument is like a bullet fired from a gun and has equal force even when issued from a child.

35.
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved.
Keller, Helen

36.
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

Landers, Ann

40.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

41.
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.
Francis, Clarence

42.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

Richards, Mary Caroline

44.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

45.
