Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.

Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.
My father told me that if you saw a man in a Rolls Royce you could be sure he was not a gentleman unless he was the chauffeur.
Arran, Earl of
Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
It takes a great deal of character strength to apologize quickly out of one's heart rather than out of pity. A person must possess himself and have a deep sense of security in fundamental principles and values in order to genuinely apologize.
Covey, Stephen R.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell
Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character.
Sivananda, Sri Swami
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.

As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
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
