Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.

I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
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.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.

I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Not to be cheered by praise, not to be grieved by blame, but to know thoroughly ones own virtues or powers are the characteristics of an excellent man.
What you possess in the world will be found at the day of your death to belong to someone else. But what you are will be yours forever.
Dyke, Henry Van
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
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.
The measure of a man's real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
Macaulay, Thomas B.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
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
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
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
