I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
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.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David
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.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
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.
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
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
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
