Milton, John

7.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

Crisp, Quentin

33.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

Faced with crisis, the man of character falls back on himself. He imposes his own stamp of action, takes responsibility for it, makes it his own.
Gaulle, Charles De

35.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.

Thoreau, Henry David

37.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

38.
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

39.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.

Beecher, Henry Ward

42.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

43.

45.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.

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

50.
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.
