If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

8.
He that has light within his own clear breast may sit in the center, and enjoy bright day: But he that hides a dark soul and foul thoughts benighted walks under the mid-day sun;
Milton, John

9.
Let us not say, every man is the architect of his own fortune; but let us say, every man is the architect of his own character.
Boardman, George D.

Everyone has the obligation to ponder well his own specific traits of character. He must also regulate them adequately and not wonder whether someone else's traits might suit him better. The more definitely his own a man's character is, the better it fits him.
Cicero

11.
Character isn't something you were born with and can't change, like your fingerprints. It's something you weren't born with and must take responsibility for forming.
Rohn, Jim

12.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.

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

15.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are.
Wooden, John

17.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

18.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

19.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

20.

Proverb

21.
Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

22.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

23.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

24.
Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
Abraham Lincoln

25.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

26.
If you create an act, you create a habit. If you create a habit, you create a character. If you create a character, you create a destiny.
Maurois, Andre

27.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

28.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

31.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.

Hill, Napoleon

Frankfurter, Felix

36.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

37.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

38.
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved.
Keller, Helen

39.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

James, William

49.
The measure of a man's real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
Macaulay, Thomas B.
