5.
You can buy a person's time; you can buy their physical presence at a given place; you can even buy a measured number of their skilled muscular motions per hour. But you can not buy enthusiasm... you can not buy loyalty. You can not buy the devotion of hearts, minds, or souls. You must earn these.
Francis, Clarence

Not to be cheered by praise, not to be grieved by blame, but to know thoroughly ones own virtues or powers are the characteristics of an excellent man.
Pandita, Saskya

Michener, James A.

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.

29.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

30.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

31.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

32.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

33.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

Miller, Arthur

43.
My father told me that if you saw a man in a Rolls Royce you could be sure he was not a gentleman unless he was the chauffeur.
Arran, Earl of

44.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

45.
Faced with crisis, the man of character falls back on himself. He imposes his own stamp of action, takes responsibility for it, makes it his own.
