If the end brings me out all wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.
Lincoln, Abraham

Virgil

22.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

23.
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. At such moments there is a voice inside which speaks and says: This is the real me!.
James, William

I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

Thurber, James

A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus
