Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.
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
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Our character...is an omen of our destiny, and the more integrity we have and keep, the simpler and nobler that destiny is likely to be.

Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua
Integrity has no need of rules.
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.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

Boardman, George D.

Property may be destroyed and money may lose its purchasing power; but, character, health, knowledge and good judgment will always be in demand under all conditions.
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.
An excellent man, like precious metal, is in every way invariable; A villain, like the beams of a balance, is always varying, upwards and downwards, himself his own dungeon.
The man who cannot believe in himself cannot believe in anything else. The basis of all integrity and character is whatever faith we have in our own integrity.
Smith, Roy L.

Emerson, Ralph Waldo

Thoreau, Henry David
