You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

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

The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

Michener, James A.

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

If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

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

16.
When about to commit a base deed, respect thyself, though there is no witness.
Ausonius, Decimus Magnus

17.
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.
Richard Greenberg

18.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

19.
Property may be destroyed and money may lose its purchasing power; but, character, health, knowledge and good judgment will always be in demand under all conditions.
Babson, Roger

20.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

21.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
Robbins, Anthony

We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

23.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

24.
Everyone has the obligation to ponder well his own specific traits of character. He must also regulate them adequately and not wonder whether someone else's traits might suit him better. The more definitely his own a man's character is, the better it fits him.
Cicero

25.
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.
William Carleton

26.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

27.
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

28.
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.
Miller, Arthur

29.
If all I'm remembered for is being a good basketball player, then I've done a bad job with the rest of my life.
Thomas, Isiah

30.
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.

31.
Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

32.
Our character...is an omen of our destiny, and the more integrity we have and keep, the simpler and nobler that destiny is likely to be.
George Santayana

33.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

34.
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

35.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

36.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.

Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

39.

Proverb, Chinese

Be thou incapable of change in that which is right, and men will rely upon thee. Establish unto thyself principles of action; and see that thou ever act according to them. First know that thy principles are just, and then be thou
Akhenaton

41.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

42.
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.
Smith, Roy L.

43.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

Forster, Edward M.

46.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

47.
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
Frankfurter, Felix

48.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

49.
The hell to be endured hereafter, of which theology tells, is no worse than the hell we make for ourselves in this world by habitually fashioned our characters in the wrong way.
James, William

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