1.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

2.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

3.
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

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

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

15.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

16.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

17.
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

18.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

19.
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

William Carleton

22.
Faced with crisis, the man of character falls back on himself. He imposes his own stamp of action, takes responsibility for it, makes it his own.
Gaulle, Charles De

Thurber, James

Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

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

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

If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

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

33.
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

34.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

35.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.
