We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

Beecher, Henry Ward
You can't go around hoping that most people have sterling moral characters. The most you can hope for is that people will pretend that they do.

If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.
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.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.
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
