If the end brings me out all wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.
Lincoln, Abraham

You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

33.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

Rohn, Jim

35.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

36.

Luther, John

37.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

46.
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.
Miller, Arthur
