Beecher, Henry Ward

23.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

Confucius

Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

26.

Menander

Limbaugh, Rush

30.
There is never a better measure of what a person is than what he does when he is absolutely free to choose.
Bulger, William M.

31.
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Mohammed

32.
Therefore keep in the midst of life. Do not isolate yourself. Be among men and things, and among troubles, and difficulties, and obstacles.
Drummond, Henry

33.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

34.

Wooden, John

Look, we're all the same; a man is a fourteen-room house --in the bedroom he's asleep with his intelligent wife, in the living-room he's rolling around with some bareass girl, in the library he's paying his taxes, in the yard he's raising tomatoes, and in the cellar he's making a bomb to blow it all up.
Miller, Arthur

37.
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.
Luther, John

38.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.

Babson, Roger

46.
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

47.
It takes a great deal of character strength to apologize quickly out of one's heart rather than out of pity. A person must possess himself and have a deep sense of security in fundamental principles and values in order to genuinely apologize.
Covey, Stephen R.

48.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith
