30.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

31.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

32.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

33.
Show me the man you honor, and I will know what kind of a man you are. It shows me what your ideal of manhood is, and what kind of a man you long to be.
Carlyle, Thomas
