Babson, Roger

Character is a victory, not a gift.

3.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

8.
Look, we're all the same; a man is a fourteen-room house --in the bedroom he's asleep with his intelligent wife, in the living-room he's rolling around with some bareass girl, in the library he's paying his taxes, in the yard he's raising tomatoes, and in the cellar he's making a bomb to blow it all up.
Miller, Arthur

Goldsmith, Oliver

Confucius

15.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

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

17.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

18.
Few persons are made of such strong fiber that they will make a costly outlay when surface work will pass as well in the market.
Bounds, E. M.

19.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

Akhenaton

24.

Bonaparte, Napoleon

25.

Oscar Levant

27.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

That which we call character is a reserved force which acts directly by presence, and without means. It is conceived of as a certain undemonstrable force, a familiar or genius, by whose impulses the man is guided, but whose counsels he cannot impart.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

29.
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

30.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.

32.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

33.
Character, in great and little things, means carrying through what you feel able to do.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
