Parkhurst, Charles H.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius
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.
Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)
A rich man has no need of character.
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.

Lowell, James Russell
Character is victory organized.
Strong feelings do not necessarily make a strong character. The strength of a man is to be measured by the power of the feelings he subdues not by the power of those which subdue him.
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
The best index to a person's character is (a) how he treats people who can't do him any good, and (b) how he treats people who can't fight back.
Buren, Abigail Van

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.
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.
Character is not made in a crisis -- it is only exhibited.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul
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.
