Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
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
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.

Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
They attack the one man with their hate and their shower of weapons. But he is like some rock which stretches into the vast sea and which, exposed to the fury of the winds and beaten against by the waves, endures all the violence
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved.
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.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.
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.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul
If I were to try to read, much less answer, all the attacks made on me, this shop might as well be closed for any other business. I do the very best I know how -- the very best I can. And I mean to keep on doing it to the end. If the end brings me out all right, what is said against me will not amount to anything. If the end brings me out all wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.
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.

A rich man has no need of character.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
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.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.
Character is a victory, not a gift.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Good character is more to be praised than outstanding talent. Most talents are, to some extent, a gift. Good character, by contrast, is not given to us. We have to build it piece by piece-by thought, choice, courage and determination.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul
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.

Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.
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.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
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.
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
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.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
If you create an act, you create a habit. If you create a habit, you create a character. If you create a character, you create a destiny.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
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.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
