Spurgeon, Charles Haddon

Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

Camus, Albert

You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

My father told me that if you saw a man in a Rolls Royce you could be sure he was not a gentleman unless he was the chauffeur.

13.
Gross and obscure natures, however decorated, seem impure shambles; but character gives splendor to youth, and awe to wrinkled skin and gray hairs.

The depth and strength of a human character are defined by its moral reserves. People reveal themselves completely only when they are thrown out of the customary conditions of their life, for only then do they have to fall back on their reserves.
Trotsky, Leon

I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

16.
It is better for the development of character and contentment to do certain things badly for yourself than to have them done better for you by someone else.

17.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

18.
I appreciate people who are civil, whether they mean it or not. I think: Be civil. Do not cherish your opinion over my feelings. There's a vanity to candor that isn't really worth it. Be kind.
Richard Greenberg

19.
Our character...is an omen of our destiny, and the more integrity we have and keep, the simpler and nobler that destiny is likely to be.
George Santayana

Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

25.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

26.
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.
Lincoln, Abraham

27.
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.
Lebowitz, Fran

Proverb, Chinese

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.
