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

2.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

3.
Faced with crisis, the man of character falls back on himself. He imposes his own stamp of action, takes responsibility for it, makes it his own.
Gaulle, Charles De

Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

7.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

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.

9.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.

Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

13.
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.

14.
Let us not say, every man is the architect of his own fortune; but let us say, every man is the architect of his own character.
Boardman, George D.

15.
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.
George Santayana

16.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

17.
You can't go around hoping that most people have sterling moral characters. The most you can hope for is that people will pretend that they do.
Lebowitz, Fran

18.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

19.

Heraclitus

How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

22.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

23.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

24.
Reputation is only a candle, of wavering and uncertain flame, and easily blown out, but it is the light by which the world looks for and finds merit.
Lowell, James Russell

25.
I would rather be adorned by beauty of character than jewels. Jewels are the gift of fortune, while character comes from within.
Plautus, Titus Maccius

26.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

27.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

28.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

29.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

30.
It is well for the world that in most of us, by the age of thirty, the character has set like plaster, and will never soften again.
James, William

31.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

32.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

33.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

34.
Property may be destroyed and money may lose its purchasing power; but, character, health, knowledge and good judgment will always be in demand under all conditions.
Babson, Roger

35.
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

36.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

37.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

38.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

39.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

40.

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

45.
He that has light within his own clear breast may sit in the center, and enjoy bright day: But he that hides a dark soul and foul thoughts benighted walks under the mid-day sun;
Milton, John

46.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David
