Confucius

21.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

Akhenaton

30.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

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

32.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

33.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

34.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

35.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

36.
As fire when thrown into water is cooled down and put out, so also a false accusation when brought against a man of the purest and holiest character, boils over and is at once dissipated, and vanishes and threats of heaven and sea, himself standing unmoved.
Cicero, Marcus T.

37.
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

38.
Everyone has the obligation to ponder well his own specific traits of character. He must also regulate them adequately and not wonder whether someone else's traits might suit him better. The more definitely his own a man's character is, the better it fits him.
Cicero

39.
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

40.
My father told me that if you saw a man in a Rolls Royce you could be sure he was not a gentleman unless he was the chauffeur.

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

To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

46.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

47.
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

48.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

49.
