Akhenaton

25.
The depth and strength of a human character are defined by its moral reserves. People reveal themselves completely only when they are thrown out of the customary conditions of their life, for only then do they have to fall back on their reserves.
Trotsky, Leon

26.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

27.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.

Lebowitz, Fran
