Michener, James A.

And I mean to keep on doing it to the end. If the end brings me out all right, what is said against me will not amount to anything. If the end brings me out all wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

Covey, Stephen R.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
An excellent man, like precious metal, is in every way invariable; A villain, like the beams of a balance, is always varying, upwards and downwards, himself his own dungeon.
Not to be cheered by praise, not to be grieved by blame, but to know thoroughly ones own virtues or powers are the characteristics of an excellent man.
I appreciate people who are civil, whether they mean it or not. I think: Be civil. Do not cherish your opinion over my feelings. There's a vanity to candor that isn't really worth it. Be kind.
