At such moments there is a voice inside which speaks and says: This is the real me!.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.

Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

Cushman, Charlotte Saunders
A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.

Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
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.

Arran, Earl of
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
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
