Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
The best index to a person's character is (a) how he treats people who can't do him any good, and (b) how he treats people who can't fight back.
Buren, Abigail Van
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
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
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.

To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
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
Old age and sickness bring out the essential characteristics of a man.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell
I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
King Jr. Martin Luther
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.
If you create an act, you create a habit. If you create a habit, you create a character. If you create a character, you create a destiny.
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
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
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 a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
It takes a great deal of character strength to apologize quickly out of one's heart rather than out of pity. A person must possess himself and have a deep sense of security in fundamental principles and values in order to genuinely apologize.
Covey, Stephen R.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David
If I were to try to read, much less answer, all the attacks made on me, this shop might as well be closed for any other business. I do the very best I know how -- the very best I can. And I mean to keep on doing it to the end. If the end brings me out all right, what is said against me will not amount to anything. If the end brings me out all wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
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.
I would rather be adorned by beauty of character than jewels. Jewels are the gift of fortune, while character comes from within.
Plautus, Titus Maccius
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
I have only got down on to paper, really, three types of people: the person I think I am, the people who irritate me, and the people I'd like to be.
Forster, Edward M.
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.
Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character.
Sivananda, Sri Swami
Therefore keep in the midst of life. Do not isolate yourself. Be among men and things, and among troubles, and difficulties, and obstacles.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas
I have often thought the best way to define a man's character would be to seek out the particular mental or moral attitude in which, when it comes upon him, he felt himself most deeply and intensely active and alive. At such moments there is a voice inside which speaks and says: This is the real me!.
A man's character is his fate.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.
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.
