People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.
I would rather be adorned by beauty of character than jewels. Jewels are the gift of fortune, while character comes from within.
Plautus, Titus Maccius
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.

Lubbock, Sir John

Bulger, William M.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
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?
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
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.
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.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.
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.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle
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.
Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good.
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!.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
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.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
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
I have only got down on to paper, really, three types of people: the person I think I am, the people who irritate me, and the people I'd like to be.
Forster, Edward M.
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.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
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
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
