A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

31.

Chambers, Oswald

32.

Parkhurst, Charles H.

33.
As fire when thrown into water is cooled down and put out, so also a false accusation when brought against a man of the purest and holiest character, boils over and is at once dissipated, and vanishes and threats of heaven and sea, himself standing unmoved.
Cicero, Marcus T.

34.
A man's character is the reality of himself; his reputation, the opinion others have formed about him; character resides in him, reputation in other people; that is the substance, this is the shadow.

Francis, Clarence

Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

39.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James
