Gaulle, Charles De
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
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
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.

Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
It is well for the world that in most of us, by the age of thirty, the character has set like plaster, and will never soften again.
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
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.

They attack the one man with their hate and their shower of weapons. But he is like some rock which stretches into the vast sea and which, exposed to the fury of the winds and beaten against by the waves, endures all the violence
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
