Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

Property may be destroyed and money may lose its purchasing power; but, character, health, knowledge and good judgment will always be in demand under all conditions.
Babson, Roger

Thoreau, Henry David

To have character is to be big enough to take life on.

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;
Milton, John

17.
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

18.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

19.
Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Oscar Levant

20.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

21.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

22.
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.

23.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

33.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

34.
Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character.
Sivananda, Sri Swami

35.
It is better for the development of character and contentment to do certain things badly for yourself than to have them done better for you by someone else.

36.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

37.
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.
Confucius

38.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

39.

All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.

What you possess in the world will be found at the day of your death to belong to someone else. But what you are will be yours forever.
Dyke, Henry Van

46.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

47.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon
