Seneca

King Jr. Martin Luther

10.
Honor is the inner garment of the Soul; the first thing put on by it with the flesh, and the last it layeth down at its separation from it.
Akhenaton

11.
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

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

Amiel, Henri Frederic

23.
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

24.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

25.
For character too is a process and an unfolding... among our valued friends is there not someone or other who is a little too self confident and disdainful; whose distinguished mind is a little spotted with commonness; who is a little pinched here and protuberant there with native prejudices; or whose better energies are liable to lapse down the wrong channel under the influence of transient solicitations?
Eliot, George

26.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

27.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

28.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

Thoreau, Henry David

32.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

33.
A man with a so-called character is often a simple piece of mechanism; he has often only one point of view for the extremely complicated relationships of life.

Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

Confucius
