Emerson, Ralph Waldo
I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
King Jr. Martin Luther
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.

Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Integrity has no need of rules.
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!.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
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
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.

People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
A rich man has no need of character.
A man's character is the reality of himself; his reputation, the opinion others have formed about him; character resides in him, reputation in other people; that is the substance, this is the shadow.
Beecher, Henry Ward

Washington, Booker T.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar
To be fond of learning is near to wisdom; to practice with vigor is near to benevolence; and to be conscious of shame is near to fortitude. He who knows these three things
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Strong feelings do not necessarily make a strong character. The strength of a man is to be measured by the power of the feelings he subdues not by the power of those which subdue him.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
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
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconcious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character

Peter The Great
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.

Good character is more to be praised than outstanding talent. Most talents are, to some extent, a gift. Good character, by contrast, is not given to us. We have to build it piece by piece-by thought, choice, courage and determination.
Our character...is an omen of our destiny, and the more integrity we have and keep, the simpler and nobler that destiny is likely to be.

Michener, James A.
The hell to be endured hereafter, of which theology tells, is no worse than the hell we make for ourselves in this world by habitually fashioned our characters in the wrong way.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.
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
A man's character is his fate.
Few persons are made of such strong fiber that they will make a costly outlay when surface work will pass as well in the market.
Bounds, E. M.
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.
Character is simply habit long continued.
It is not what he had, or even what he does which expresses the worth of a man, but what he is.
Amiel, Henri Frederic
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.
