Character

- Buren, Abigail Van

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

Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

13.
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

14.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

15.
The hell to be endured hereafter, of which theology tells, is no worse than the hell we make for ourselves in this world by habitually fashioned our characters in the wrong way.
James, William

Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

25.
There is never a better measure of what a person is than what he does when he is absolutely free to choose.
Bulger, William M.

Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

Akhenaton

32.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

33.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

It is not what he had, or even what he does which expresses the worth of a man, but what he is.
Amiel, Henri Frederic

Elihu Burritt

41.

Reynolds, Sir Joshua

47.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

48.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

49.
Good character is more to be praised than outstanding talent. Most talents are, to some extent, a gift. Good character, by contrast, is not given to us. We have to build it piece by piece-by thought, choice, courage and determination.
Luther, John

50.
Testimony is like an arrow shot from a long bow and the force of it depends on the strength of the arm from which it was shot. Argument is like a bullet fired from a gun and has equal force even when issued from a child.
