Gaulle, Charles De
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.

A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you, and were helped by you, will remember you when forget-me-nots are withered. Carve your name on hearts, and not on marble
Spurgeon, Charles Haddon
Integrity has no need of rules.

Buren, Abigail Van

Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
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.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Character is simply habit long continued.

Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
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.
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;
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.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
During my eighty-seven years, I have witnessed a whole succession of technological revolutions. But none of them has done away with the need for character in the individual or the ability to think.
Baruch, Bernard M.
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.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

Boardman, George D.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
