Few persons are made of such strong fiber that they will make a costly outlay when surface work will pass as well in the market.
Bounds, E. M.
A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.
The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
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.
Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.
Elmer G. Letterman
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
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.
Temperance is a tree which as for its root very little contentment, and for its fruit calm and peace.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
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
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
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.
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.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

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.
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.

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.
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;
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
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.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
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.
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!.
Character is our destiny.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
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.
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
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
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
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.
Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.
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.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you, and were helped by you, will remember you when forget-me-nots are withered. Carve your name on hearts, and not on marble
Spurgeon, Charles Haddon
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
