Character

Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.

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.

We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
Lincoln, Abraham

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

Abbott, Lyman

38.

40.
Be thou incapable of change in that which is right, and men will rely upon thee. Establish unto thyself principles of action; and see that thou ever act according to them. First know that thy principles are just, and then be thou
Akhenaton

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

42.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.

47.
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

48.
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

49.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

50.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Hermann Hesse
