Richards, Mary Caroline

25.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

26.

Dyke, Henry Van

28.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

Lebowitz, Fran

33.
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.

34.
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

35.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

38.
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.

39.
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

40.
