Emerson, Ralph Waldo

Peter The Great

9.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

The depth and strength of a human character are defined by its moral reserves. People reveal themselves completely only when they are thrown out of the customary conditions of their life, for only then do they have to fall back on their reserves.
Trotsky, Leon

11.
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.

15.
We falsely attribute to men a determined character -- putting together all their yesterdays -- and averaging them -- we presume we know them. Pity the man who has character to support -- it is worse than a large family -- he is the silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

16.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

17.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

18.

Limbaugh, Rush

22.
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.
Pandita, Saskya

23.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

24.
A man's character is the reality of himself; his reputation, the opinion others have formed about him; character resides in him, reputation in other people; that is the substance, this is the shadow.
Beecher, Henry Ward

25.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

26.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

27.
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

28.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

Few persons are made of such strong fiber that they will make a costly outlay when surface work will pass as well in the market.
Bounds, E. M.

31.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

32.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

33.

Frankfurter, Felix

34.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

35.
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

36.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

37.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

38.
Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character.
Sivananda, Sri Swami

39.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

40.
It is not what he had, or even what he does which expresses the worth of a man, but what he is.

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
