Babson, Roger

The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
King Jr. Martin Luther

6.
An excellent man, like precious metal, is in every way invariable; A villain, like the beams of a balance, is always varying, upwards and downwards, himself his own dungeon.
Pandita, Saskya

7.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

Cicero, Marcus T.

14.
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.
Trotsky, Leon

15.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

16.
Too often the strong, silent man is silent only because he does not know what to say, and is reputed strong only because he has remained silent.
Churchill, Winston

17.
I have only got down on to paper, really, three types of people: the person I think I am, the people who irritate me, and the people I'd like to be.
Forster, Edward M.

18.
If all I'm remembered for is being a good basketball player, then I've done a bad job with the rest of my life.
Thomas, Isiah

19.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

20.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

21.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

22.
For character too is a process and an unfolding... among our valued friends is there not someone or other who is a little too self confident and disdainful; whose distinguished mind is a little spotted with commonness; who is a little pinched here and protuberant there with native prejudices; or whose better energies are liable to lapse down the wrong channel under the influence of transient solicitations?
Eliot, George

23.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

We falsely attribute to men a determined character -- putting together all their yesterdays -- and averaging them -- we presume we know them. Pity the man who has character to support -- it is worse than a large family -- he is the silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

25.
No artist work is so high, so noble, so grand, so enduring, so important for all time, as the making of character in a child.
Cushman, Charlotte Saunders

Show me the man you honor, and I will know what kind of a man you are. It shows me what your ideal of manhood is, and what kind of a man you long to be.
Carlyle, Thomas

27.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

28.
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.

29.
They attack the one man with their hate and their shower of weapons. But he is like some rock which stretches into the vast sea and which, exposed to the fury of the winds and beaten against by the waves, endures all the violence
Virgil

30.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

31.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

32.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

Thackeray, William M.
