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.

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.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.

Smith, Roy L.

A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you, and were helped by you, will remember you when forget-me-nots are withered. Carve your name on hearts, and not on marble
Spurgeon, Charles Haddon
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
