Voltaire

You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
Seneca

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.

19.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

20.
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.
Pandita, Saskya

21.

Lebowitz, Fran

24.
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.
Rohn, Jim

25.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

26.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

27.
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.
Miller, Arthur

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

Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

33.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

34.
If I were to try to read, much less answer, all the attacks made on me, this shop might as well be closed for any other business. I do the very best I know how -- the very best I can. 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.
Lincoln, Abraham

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

47.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

The depth and strength of a human character are defined by its moral reserves. People reveal themselves completely only when they are thrown out of the customary conditions of their life, for only then do they have to fall back on their reserves.
