Integrity has no need of rules.
Show me the man you honor, and I will know what kind of a man you are. It shows me what your ideal of manhood is, and what kind of a man you long to be.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.

Smith, Roy L.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.

Forster, Edward M.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Therefore keep in the midst of life. Do not isolate yourself. Be among men and things, and among troubles, and difficulties, and obstacles.
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.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

Bulger, William M.
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.
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.

A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
A man's character is his fate.

Bounds, E. M.
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!.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul
