Montale, Eugenio

Emerson, Ralph Waldo

Richard Greenberg

Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

Property may be destroyed and money may lose its purchasing power; but, character, health, knowledge and good judgment will always be in demand under all conditions.
Babson, Roger

14.
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.
Wooden, John

15.
Be thou incapable of change in that which is right, and men will rely upon thee. Establish unto thyself principles of action; and see that thou ever act according to them. First know that thy principles are just, and then be thou
Akhenaton

16.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

Character development is the aim of education.
O'Shea

18.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

19.
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.

20.
How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

21.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

22.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

23.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

24.
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

25.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

26.
We falsely attribute to men a determined character -- putting together all their yesterdays -- and averaging them -- we presume we know them. Pity the man who has character to support -- it is worse than a large family -- he is the silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

27.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

28.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

29.
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

30.
Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared; but only men of character are trusted.

31.
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

32.
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

33.
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

34.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

35.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

36.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

37.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.

38.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

39.
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

40.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.

Thurber, James

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

48.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

49.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

50.
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.
Lincoln, Abraham
