Howell, Harry

Aquinas, St. Thomas

While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.

If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Montale, Eugenio

9.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

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.
William Carleton

11.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

12.
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

13.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

15.
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

16.
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.

17.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

18.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

19.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

20.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

21.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

22.
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
Akhenaton

23.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

24.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

25.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

26.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

27.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

28.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

29.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

30.
We falsely attribute to men a determined character -- putting together all their yesterdays -- and averaging them -- we presume we know them. Pity the man who has character to support -- it is worse than a large family -- he is the silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

31.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

32.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

33.
As fire when thrown into water is cooled down and put out, so also a false accusation when brought against a man of the purest and holiest character, boils over and is at once dissipated, and vanishes and threats of heaven and sea, himself standing unmoved.
Cicero, Marcus T.

34.
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
Confucius

35.
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

36.
It is well for the world that in most of us, by the age of thirty, the character has set like plaster, and will never soften again.
James, William

37.
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

38.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

39.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

40.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

41.
I appreciate people who are civil, whether they mean it or not. I think: Be civil. Do not cherish your opinion over my feelings. There's a vanity to candor that isn't really worth it. Be kind.
Richard Greenberg

42.
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

43.
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.
James, William

44.
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.

45.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

46.
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

47.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

48.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

49.
Reputation is only a candle, of wavering and uncertain flame, and easily blown out, but it is the light by which the world looks for and finds merit.
Lowell, James Russell

50.
Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are.
Wooden, John
