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

Property may be destroyed and money may lose its purchasing power; but, character, health, knowledge and good judgment will always be in demand under all conditions.
Babson, Roger

An excellent man, like precious metal, is in every way invariable; A villain, like the beams of a balance, is always varying, upwards and downwards, himself his own dungeon.

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.

16.
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.

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.

19.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

20.
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.

21.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

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

26.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

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

28.

Richards, Mary Caroline

29.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

30.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

31.
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

32.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

33.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

34.
I have often thought the best way to define a man's character would be to seek out the particular mental or moral attitude in which, when it comes upon him, he felt himself most deeply and intensely active and alive. At such moments there is a voice inside which speaks and says: This is the real me!.
James, William

35.
Character isn't something you were born with and can't change, like your fingerprints. It's something you weren't born with and must take responsibility for forming.
Rohn, Jim

36.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.

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

41.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

42.
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.
