Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
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.
We falsely attribute to men a determined character -- putting together all their yesterdays -- and averaging them -- we presume we know them. Pity the man who has character to support -- it is worse than a large family -- he is the silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

Thackeray, William M.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
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.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
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.
