Abraham Lincoln

2.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

3.
Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconcious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character
Covey, Stephen R.

Be thou incapable of change in that which is right, and men will rely upon thee. Establish unto thyself principles of action; and see that thou ever act according to them. First know that thy principles are just, and then be thou
Akhenaton

There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

14.
Therefore keep in the midst of life. Do not isolate yourself. Be among men and things, and among troubles, and difficulties, and obstacles.
Drummond, Henry

15.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

16.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

17.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

18.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

19.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

20.
A man with a so-called character is often a simple piece of mechanism; he has often only one point of view for the extremely complicated relationships of life.
Strindberg, J. August

21.
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.

22.
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

23.
You can't go around hoping that most people have sterling moral characters. The most you can hope for is that people will pretend that they do.
Lebowitz, Fran

24.
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

25.
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

26.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

27.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

28.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

29.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

30.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

31.
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.

32.
Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

33.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

34.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.

At such moments there is a voice inside which speaks and says: This is the real me!.
James, William
