Character is a victory, not a gift.

3.
Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconcious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character
Covey, Stephen R.

A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

He that has light within his own clear breast may sit in the center, and enjoy bright day: But he that hides a dark soul and foul thoughts benighted walks under the mid-day sun;
Milton, John

9.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

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

15.
Too often the strong, silent man is silent only because he does not know what to say, and is reputed strong only because he has remained silent.
Churchill, Winston

16.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

17.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

18.
Therefore keep in the midst of life. Do not isolate yourself. Be among men and things, and among troubles, and difficulties, and obstacles.
Drummond, Henry

19.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

20.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

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

22.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

24.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

During my eighty-seven years, I have witnessed a whole succession of technological revolutions. But none of them has done away with the need for character in the individual or the ability to think.
Baruch, Bernard M.

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.

28.
They attack the one man with their hate and their shower of weapons. But he is like some rock which stretches into the vast sea and which, exposed to the fury of the winds and beaten against by the waves, endures all the violence
Virgil

29.
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

30.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

31.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

32.
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.

33.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

34.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

35.
The best index to a person's character is (a) how he treats people who can't do him any good, and (b) how he treats people who can't fight back.
Buren, Abigail Van

36.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.

Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

Faced with crisis, the man of character falls back on himself. He imposes his own stamp of action, takes responsibility for it, makes it his own.
