- Akhenaton

We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

Buddha

Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

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.

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.

17.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

18.
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

19.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

20.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

21.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

22.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

23.

Confucius

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.
James, William

39.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

40.
As fire when thrown into water is cooled down and put out, so also a false accusation when brought against a man of the purest and holiest character, boils over and is at once dissipated, and vanishes and threats of heaven and sea, himself standing unmoved.
Cicero, Marcus T.

41.
I have often thought the best way to define a man's character would be to seek out the particular mental or moral attitude in which, when it comes upon him, he felt himself most deeply and intensely active and alive.

Miller, Arthur

49.
Character development is the aim of education.
