During my eighty-seven years, I have witnessed a whole succession of technological revolutions. But none of them has done away with the need for character in the individual or the ability to think.
Baruch, Bernard M.

2.
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.

3.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character.
Sivananda, Sri Swami

12.
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

13.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

14.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

15.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

16.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

17.
Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

18.
I have only got down on to paper, really, three types of people: the person I think I am, the people who irritate me, and the people I'd like to be.
Forster, Edward M.

A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

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

The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

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

26.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

27.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

28.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

29.
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
