One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
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.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.
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
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

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.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
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.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David
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 is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
A man's character is his fate.
Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
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.

Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.
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.
Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good.
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
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.
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 character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Gross and obscure natures, however decorated, seem impure shambles; but character gives splendor to youth, and awe to wrinkled skin and gray hairs.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.
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.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
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
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.

Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
You can buy a person's time; you can buy their physical presence at a given place; you can even buy a measured number of their skilled muscular motions per hour. But you can not buy enthusiasm... you can not buy loyalty. You can not buy the devotion of hearts, minds, or souls. You must earn these.
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.
