W. Somerset Maugham
Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good.
Look, we're all the same; a man is a fourteen-room house --in the bedroom he's asleep with his intelligent wife, in the living-room he's rolling around with some bareass girl, in the library he's paying his taxes, in the yard he's raising tomatoes, and in the cellar he's making a bomb to blow it all up.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.

Lowell, James Russell
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!.

You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
You must look into people, as well as at them.
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 good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you, and were helped by you, will remember you when forget-me-nots are withered. Carve your name on hearts, and not on marble
Spurgeon, Charles Haddon
