Emerson, Ralph Waldo

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

3.

Cicero

4.
Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.
Collins, Marva

As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]

A man's character is the reality of himself; his reputation, the opinion others have formed about him; character resides in him, reputation in other people; that is the substance, this is the shadow.
Beecher, Henry Ward

7.
The man who cannot believe in himself cannot believe in anything else. The basis of all integrity and character is whatever faith we have in our own integrity.

Brown, Les

15.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

16.
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude

17.
Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
Abraham Lincoln

18.
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.

19.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

20.

Gill, Vince

21.
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

22.
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.

23.
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.
Francis, Clarence

24.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

25.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

26.
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

27.
Character is the indelible mark that determines the only true value of all people and all their work.
Marden, Orison Swett

28.
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.

29.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

30.
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

31.
