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.

I have often thought the best way to define a man's character would be to seek out the particular mental or moral attitude in which, when it comes upon him, he felt himself most deeply and intensely active and alive. At such moments there is a voice inside which speaks and says: This is the real me!.
James, William

19.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

20.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

21.
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

22.
It is well for the world that in most of us, by the age of thirty, the character has set like plaster, and will never soften again.
James, William

23.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

Cicero

29.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

Confucius

36.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

Miller, Arthur

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