How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Character is simply habit long continued.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell
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.
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.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Character is victory organized.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar
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
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.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
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
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

Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
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.
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.
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.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
It is not what he had, or even what he does which expresses the worth of a man, but what he is.
Amiel, Henri Frederic
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
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.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great
Character development is the aim of education.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Show me the man you honor, and I will know what kind of a man you are. It shows me what your ideal of manhood is, and what kind of a man you long to be.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.
Reputation is only a candle, of wavering and uncertain flame, and easily blown out, but it is the light by which the world looks for and finds merit.
Lowell, James Russell
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.
You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives praise.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Honor is the inner garment of the Soul; the first thing put on by it with the flesh, and the last it layeth down at its separation from it.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
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
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.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
