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

During my eighty-seven years, I have witnessed a whole succession of technological revolutions. But none of them has done away with the need for character in the individual or the ability to think.
Baruch, Bernard M.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.
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.

Thoreau, Henry David
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas
Therefore keep in the midst of life. Do not isolate yourself. Be among men and things, and among troubles, and difficulties, and obstacles.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.
Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.
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
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.

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
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.
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
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
For character too is a process and an unfolding... among our valued friends is there not someone or other who is a little too self confident and disdainful; whose distinguished mind is a little spotted with commonness; who is a little pinched here and protuberant there with native prejudices; or whose better energies are liable to lapse down the wrong channel under the influence of transient solicitations?
Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Testimony is like an arrow shot from a long bow and the force of it depends on the strength of the arm from which it was shot. Argument is like a bullet fired from a gun and has equal force even when issued from a child.
The character of a man is known from his conversations.
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

The best index to a person's character is (a) how he treats people who can't do him any good, and (b) how he treats people who can't fight back.
Buren, Abigail Van
