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

Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David
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.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul

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
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar
To be fond of learning is near to wisdom; to practice with vigor is near to benevolence; and to be conscious of shame is near to fortitude. He who knows these three things

When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.

Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
