Trotsky, Leon

Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Hill, Napoleon

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

15.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

16.
To succeed is nothing, it's an accident. but to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Marie Leneru

17.
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

Emerson, Ralph Waldo

23.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

27.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

28.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

29.
You can buy a person's time; you can buy their physical presence at a given place; you can even buy a measured number of their skilled muscular motions per hour. But you can not buy enthusiasm... you can not buy loyalty. You can not buy the devotion of hearts, minds, or souls. You must earn these.
Francis, Clarence

30.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques
