The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

4.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

That which we call character is a reserved force which acts directly by presence, and without means. It is conceived of as a certain undemonstrable force, a familiar or genius, by whose impulses the man is guided, but whose counsels he cannot impart.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

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

Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

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 have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

Buddha

Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

14.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

15.
Sometimes people carry to such perfection the mask they have assumed that in due course they actually become the person they seem.
W. Somerset Maugham

16.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace

17.
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.
Boardman, George D.

18.
Our character...is an omen of our destiny, and the more integrity we have and keep, the simpler and nobler that destiny is likely to be.
George Santayana

19.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

20.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

21.
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

22.
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

23.
The depth and strength of a human character are defined by its moral reserves. People reveal themselves completely only when they are thrown out of the customary conditions of their life, for only then do they have to fall back on their reserves.
Trotsky, Leon

24.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

25.
The measure of a man's real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
Macaulay, Thomas B.

26.
He that has light within his own clear breast may sit in the center, and enjoy bright day: But he that hides a dark soul and foul thoughts benighted walks under the mid-day sun;
Milton, John

27.
My father told me that if you saw a man in a Rolls Royce you could be sure he was not a gentleman unless he was the chauffeur.
Arran, Earl of

28.
Look, we're all the same; a man is a fourteen-room house --in the bedroom he's asleep with his intelligent wife, in the living-room he's rolling around with some bareass girl, in the library he's paying his taxes, in the yard he's raising tomatoes, and in the cellar he's making a bomb to blow it all up.
Miller, Arthur

29.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

30.
Not to be cheered by praise, not to be grieved by blame, but to know thoroughly ones own virtues or powers are the characteristics of an excellent man.
Pandita, Saskya

31.
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!.
James, William

32.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

33.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John

No artist work is so high, so noble, so grand, so enduring, so important for all time, as the making of character in a child.
Cushman, Charlotte Saunders

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

39.
Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are.
Wooden, John

40.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

41.
Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

42.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

43.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.

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.
Akhenaton
