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

16.
As fire when thrown into water is cooled down and put out, so also a false accusation when brought against a man of the purest and holiest character, boils over and is at once dissipated, and vanishes and threats of heaven and sea, himself standing unmoved.
Cicero, Marcus T.

17.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman

Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

Thoreau, Henry David

29.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

31.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

32.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

33.
Good character is more to be praised than outstanding talent. Most talents are, to some extent, a gift. Good character, by contrast, is not given to us. We have to build it piece by piece-by thought, choice, courage and determination.
Luther, John

34.
Character isn't something you were born with and can't change, like your fingerprints. It's something you weren't born with and must take responsibility for forming.
Rohn, Jim

35.
The superior man will watch over himself when he is alone. He examines his heart that there may be nothing wrong there, and that he may have no cause of dissatisfaction with himself.
Confucius

Virgil

38.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

Karr, Alphonse
