Spurgeon, Charles Haddon
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
Sometimes people carry to such perfection the mask they have assumed that in due course they actually become the person they seem.
W. Somerset Maugham

Boardman, George D.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.

If I were to try to read, much less answer, all the attacks made on me, this shop might as well be closed for any other business. I do the very best I know how -- the very best I can. And I mean to keep on doing it to the end. If the end brings me out all right, what is said against me will not amount to anything. If the end brings me out all wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.

Macaulay, Thomas B.
The superior man will watch over himself when he is alone. He examines his heart that there may be nothing wrong there, and that he may have no cause of dissatisfaction with himself.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
A man with a so-called character is often a simple piece of mechanism; he has often only one point of view for the extremely complicated relationships of life.
Strindberg, J. August
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
