A man's character is the reality of himself; his reputation, the opinion others have formed about him; character resides in him, reputation in other people; that is the substance, this is the shadow.
Beecher, Henry Ward

5.
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.

Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

W. Somerset Maugham

16.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

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.
Trotsky, Leon

18.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

Richard Greenberg

26.
If all I'm remembered for is being a good basketball player, then I've done a bad job with the rest of my life.
Thomas, Isiah

27.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

28.
Reputation is only a candle, of wavering and uncertain flame, and easily blown out, but it is the light by which the world looks for and finds merit.
Lowell, James Russell

29.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

30.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

31.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

32.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

33.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

34.
I have only got down on to paper, really, three types of people: the person I think I am, the people who irritate me, and the people I'd like to be.

Akhenaton

Karr, Alphonse

42.
