People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

Menander

The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.

Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are.
Wooden, John

8.
Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good.
Landers, Ann

9.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

The best index to a person's character is (a) how he treats people who can't do him any good, and (b) how he treats people who can't fight back.
Buren, Abigail Van

14.
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.
Keller, Helen

15.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

16.
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.

17.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

Thurber, James

Pandita, Saskya

23.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

24.
No artist work is so high, so noble, so grand, so enduring, so important for all time, as the making of character in a child.
Cushman, Charlotte Saunders

25.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

26.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

27.
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principles.
Hume, David

28.
You can't go around hoping that most people have sterling moral characters. The most you can hope for is that people will pretend that they do.
Lebowitz, Fran

29.
Testimony is like an arrow shot from a long bow and the force of it depends on the strength of the arm from which it was shot. Argument is like a bullet fired from a gun and has equal force even when issued from a child.

30.
He that has light within his own clear breast may sit in the center, and enjoy bright day: But he that hides a dark soul and foul thoughts benighted walks under the mid-day sun;
Milton, John

31.
If I were to try to read, much less answer, all the attacks made on me, this shop might as well be closed for any other business. I do the very best I know how -- the very best I can. And I mean to keep on doing it to the end. If the end brings me out all right, what is said against me will not amount to anything. If the end brings me out all wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.
Lincoln, Abraham

32.
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

33.
That which we call character is a reserved force which acts directly by presence, and without means. It is conceived of as a certain undemonstrable force, a familiar or genius, by whose impulses the man is guided, but whose counsels he cannot impart.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

34.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

35.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

36.
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

37.
A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you, and were helped by you, will remember you when forget-me-nots are withered. Carve your name on hearts, and not on marble
Spurgeon, Charles Haddon

38.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

40.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

47.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

48.
Let us not say, every man is the architect of his own fortune; but let us say, every man is the architect of his own character.
Boardman, George D.

49.
They attack the one man with their hate and their shower of weapons. But he is like some rock which stretches into the vast sea and which, exposed to the fury of the winds and beaten against by the waves, endures all the violence
Virgil

50.
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.
