Disraeli, Benjamin

Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare

3.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

4.
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

5.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

6.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

7.
We falsely attribute to men a determined character -- putting together all their yesterdays -- and averaging them -- we presume we know them. Pity the man who has character to support -- it is worse than a large family -- he is the silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

8.
You can buy a person's time; you can buy their physical presence at a given place; you can even buy a measured number of their skilled muscular motions per hour. But you can not buy enthusiasm... you can not buy loyalty. You can not buy the devotion of hearts, minds, or souls. You must earn these.
Francis, Clarence

Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

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

William Carleton

12.
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.
Beecher, Henry Ward

13.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

14.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

15.
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

16.
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

17.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

18.
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.

19.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

20.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

21.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

22.
Show me the man you honor, and I will know what kind of a man you are. It shows me what your ideal of manhood is, and what kind of a man you long to be.
Carlyle, Thomas

Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

24.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

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

28.
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

29.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

30.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

31.
A man with a so-called character is often a simple piece of mechanism; he has often only one point of view for the extremely complicated relationships of life.
Strindberg, J. August

32.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

33.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

34.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

36.
It is better for the development of character and contentment to do certain things badly for yourself than to have them done better for you by someone else.

37.
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.
