Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

Testimony is like an arrow shot from a long bow and the force of it depends on the strength of the arm from which it was shot. Argument is like a bullet fired from a gun and has equal force even when issued from a child.

O'Shea

We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

18.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

19.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.

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.

25.
Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good.
Landers, Ann

26.
Strong feelings do not necessarily make a strong character. The strength of a man is to be measured by the power of the feelings he subdues not by the power of those which subdue him.
William Carleton

27.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse

28.
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

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.
Luther, John

34.
Be thou incapable of change in that which is right, and men will rely upon thee. Establish unto thyself principles of action; and see that thou ever act according to them. First know that thy principles are just, and then be thou
Akhenaton

35.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

36.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

37.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

38.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

39.
I would rather be adorned by beauty of character than jewels. Jewels are the gift of fortune, while character comes from within.
Plautus, Titus Maccius

40.
As fire when thrown into water is cooled down and put out, so also a false accusation when brought against a man of the purest and holiest character, boils over and is at once dissipated, and vanishes and threats of heaven and sea, himself standing unmoved.
Cicero, Marcus T.

41.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

42.
Therefore keep in the midst of life. Do not isolate yourself. Be among men and things, and among troubles, and difficulties, and obstacles.
Drummond, Henry

43.
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

Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

50.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert
