Thackeray, William M.

5.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

6.
You can't go around hoping that most people have sterling moral characters. The most you can hope for is that people will pretend that they do.
Lebowitz, Fran

7.
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

Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

14.
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

15.
Let us not say, every man is the architect of his own fortune; but let us say, every man is the architect of his own character.
Boardman, George D.

16.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

Richter, Jean Paul

23.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

24.
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

There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

Elihu Burritt

28.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

29.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

30.

Aquinas, St. Thomas

31.
Our character...is an omen of our destiny, and the more integrity we have and keep, the simpler and nobler that destiny is likely to be.
George Santayana

32.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

33.
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

34.
It takes a great deal of character strength to apologize quickly out of one's heart rather than out of pity. A person must possess himself and have a deep sense of security in fundamental principles and values in order to genuinely apologize.
Covey, Stephen R.

35.
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

36.
The measure of a man's real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
Macaulay, Thomas B.

37.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

38.
Honor is the inner garment of the Soul; the first thing put on by it with the flesh, and the last it layeth down at its separation from it.
Akhenaton

39.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

40.
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.

41.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

42.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

43.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

44.
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.

45.
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

46.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Hall, Manly

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
