Euripides

6.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

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

Our character...is an omen of our destiny, and the more integrity we have and keep, the simpler and nobler that destiny is likely to be.
George Santayana

15.
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

16.
Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
Abraham Lincoln

17.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

18.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

19.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

20.

Lebowitz, Fran

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

You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

23.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

24.
Honor is the inner garment of the Soul; the first thing put on by it with the flesh, and the last it layeth down at its separation from it.
Akhenaton

25.
Everyone has the obligation to ponder well his own specific traits of character. He must also regulate them adequately and not wonder whether someone else's traits might suit him better. The more definitely his own a man's character is, the better it fits him.
Cicero

One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

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

29.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

30.
The man who cannot believe in himself cannot believe in anything else. The basis of all integrity and character is whatever faith we have in our own integrity.
Smith, Roy L.

31.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

32.
Reputation is only a candle, of wavering and uncertain flame, and easily blown out, but it is the light by which the world looks for and finds merit.
Lowell, James Russell

33.
Good character is like a rubber ball -- thrown down hard -- it bounces right back. Good reputation is like a crystal ball -- thrown for gain -- shattered and cracked.
Linall Jr. A. L.

34.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

35.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

36.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

37.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

38.
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.

Peter The Great

42.
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

Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

46.
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

47.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

48.
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

49.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

50.
The best index to a person's character is (a) how he treats people who can't do him any good, and (b) how he treats people who can't fight back.
Buren, Abigail Van
