Aquinas, St. Thomas
Gross and obscure natures, however decorated, seem impure shambles; but character gives splendor to youth, and awe to wrinkled skin and gray hairs.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Good character is more to be praised than outstanding talent. Most talents are, to some extent, a gift. Good character, by contrast, is not given to us. We have to build it piece by piece-by thought, choice, courage and determination.
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.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
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.
A man's character is the reality of himself; his reputation, the opinion others have formed about him; character resides in him, reputation in other people; that is the substance, this is the shadow.
Beecher, Henry Ward
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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.
