Petrarch, Francesco

The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

3.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

4.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

5.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
Freeman, Robert

6.
We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities.
Maritain, Jacques

7.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

Plautus, Titus Maccius

10.
You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

11.
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

12.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

13.
Success is always temporary. When all is said and one, the only thing you'll have left is your character.
Gill, Vince

14.
It is better for the development of character and contentment to do certain things badly for yourself than to have them done better for you by someone else.

15.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

16.
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

17.
Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.

18.
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

19.
A man with a so-called character is often a simple piece of mechanism; he has often only one point of view for the extremely complicated relationships of life.
Strindberg, J. August

20.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya

21.
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.
Lincoln, Abraham

22.
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.
James, William

23.
Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

24.
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.
Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon

25.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

26.
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.
James, William

27.
Though intelligence is powerless to modify character, it is a dab hand at finding euphemisms for its weaknesses.
Crisp, Quentin

28.
Testimony is like an arrow shot from a long bow and the force of it depends on the strength of the arm from which it was shot. Argument is like a bullet fired from a gun and has equal force even when issued from a child.

29.
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.
Carlyle, Thomas

30.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

31.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

32.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

33.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

34.
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.

35.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Buddha

36.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

37.
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.
Lebowitz, Fran

38.
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.
Maurois, Andre

39.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

41.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

43.
To be fond of learning is near to wisdom; to practice with vigor is near to benevolence; and to be conscious of shame is near to fortitude. He who knows these three things
Confucius

44.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

45.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

46.
The superior man will watch over himself when he is alone. He examines his heart that there may be nothing wrong there, and that he may have no cause of dissatisfaction with himself.
Confucius

47.
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.

Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace
