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

If you create an act, you create a habit. If you create a habit, you create a character. If you create a character, you create a destiny.
Maurois, Andre

Francis Thompson

You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

It is better for the development of character and contentment to do certain things badly for yourself than to have them done better for you by someone else.

17.
Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good.
Landers, Ann

Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

Gardner, Ava

Cicero

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

25.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

Strindberg, J. August

29.
Good character is like a rubber ball -- thrown down hard -- it bounces right back. Good reputation is like a crystal ball -- thrown for gain -- shattered and cracked.
Linall Jr. A. L.

30.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

31.
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved.
Keller, Helen

32.
We falsely attribute to men a determined character -- putting together all their yesterdays -- and averaging them -- we presume we know them. Pity the man who has character to support -- it is worse than a large family -- he is the silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

33.
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.

34.
For character too is a process and an unfolding... among our valued friends is there not someone or other who is a little too self confident and disdainful; whose distinguished mind is a little spotted with commonness; who is a little pinched here and protuberant there with native prejudices; or whose better energies are liable to lapse down the wrong channel under the influence of transient solicitations?
Eliot, George

35.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

36.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
Bible

37.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

38.
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

39.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

40.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

41.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

42.
Gross and obscure natures, however decorated, seem impure shambles; but character gives splendor to youth, and awe to wrinkled skin and gray hairs.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

43.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

44.
I would rather be adorned by beauty of character than jewels. Jewels are the gift of fortune, while character comes from within.
Plautus, Titus Maccius

45.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

46.
Few persons are made of such strong fiber that they will make a costly outlay when surface work will pass as well in the market.
Bounds, E. M.

47.
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

48.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

49.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

50.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus
