You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

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
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
A man's character is his fate.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.
Honor is the inner garment of the Soul; the first thing put on by it with the flesh, and the last it layeth down at its separation from it.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Look, we're all the same; a man is a fourteen-room house --in the bedroom he's asleep with his intelligent wife, in the living-room he's rolling around with some bareass girl, in the library he's paying his taxes, in the yard he's raising tomatoes, and in the cellar he's making a bomb to blow it all up.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Good character is like a rubber ball -- thrown down hard -- it bounces right back. Good reputation is like a crystal ball -- thrown for gain -- shattered and cracked.
Linall Jr. A. L.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
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.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
They attack the one man with their hate and their shower of weapons. But he is like some rock which stretches into the vast sea and which, exposed to the fury of the winds and beaten against by the waves, endures all the violence

James A. Froude
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
For character too is a process and an unfolding... among our valued friends is there not someone or other who is a little too self confident and disdainful; whose distinguished mind is a little spotted with commonness; who is a little pinched here and protuberant there with native prejudices; or whose better energies are liable to lapse down the wrong channel under the influence of transient solicitations?
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
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
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.
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.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Property may be destroyed and money may lose its purchasing power; but, character, health, knowledge and good judgment will always be in demand under all conditions.
