5.
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?
Eliot, George

6.

Luther, John

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

17.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

During my eighty-seven years, I have witnessed a whole succession of technological revolutions. But none of them has done away with the need for character in the individual or the ability to think.
Baruch, Bernard M.

33.
What you possess in the world will be found at the day of your death to belong to someone else. But what you are will be yours forever.
Dyke, Henry Van

34.
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.

Hall, Manly

41.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.
