Cicero, Marcus T.

Everyone has the obligation to ponder well his own specific traits of character. He must also regulate them adequately and not wonder whether someone else's traits might suit him better. The more definitely his own a man's character is, the better it fits him.
Cicero

35.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

38.
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.

Thackeray, William M.

Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

48.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

49.

Akhenaton

50.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.
