La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
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

Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett
No artist work is so high, so noble, so grand, so enduring, so important for all time, as the making of character in a child.
Cushman, Charlotte Saunders
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
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.

What you possess in the world will be found at the day of your death to belong to someone else. But what you are will be yours forever.
Dyke, Henry Van
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Be thou incapable of change in that which is right, and men will rely upon thee. Establish unto thyself principles of action; and see that thou ever act according to them. First know that thy principles are just, and then be thou

The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

Fitzwater, P. B.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
It is not what he had, or even what he does which expresses the worth of a man, but what he is.
Amiel, Henri Frederic
Character is victory organized.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

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.
