Character

Character isn't something you were born with and can't change, like your fingerprints. It's something you weren't born with and must take responsibility for forming.
- Rohn, Jim

Schopenhauer, Arthur

Thoreau, Henry David

James A. Froude

24.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

Lavater, Johann Kaspar

Character is victory organized.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

27.

Richard Greenberg

36.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

37.

Voltaire

Wooden, John

44.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew
