Lowell, James Russell
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
During my eighty-seven years, I have witnessed a whole succession of technological revolutions. But none of them has done away with the need for character in the individual or the ability to think.

No artist work is so high, so noble, so grand, so enduring, so important for all time, as the making of character in a child.
Cushman, Charlotte Saunders
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
There is never a better measure of what a person is than what he does when he is absolutely free to choose.
Bulger, William M.
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.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Too many lives are needed to make just one.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius
The character of every act depends upon the circumstances in which it is done.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.

Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.
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
If anyone tells you someone has changed their character; don't believe it.
Character isn't something you were born with and can't change, like your fingerprints. It's something you weren't born with and must take responsibility for forming.
Surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James A. Froude
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.
The lord will not hold back the promises, even if the person who makes them is not worthy.
I would rather be adorned by beauty of character than jewels. Jewels are the gift of fortune, while character comes from within.
Plautus, Titus Maccius
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
King Jr. Martin Luther
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Sometimes people carry to such perfection the mask they have assumed that in due course they actually become the person they seem.
W. Somerset Maugham
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
Lubbock, Sir John
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great
Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character.
Sivananda, Sri Swami
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
As fire when thrown into water is cooled down and put out, so also a false accusation when brought against a man of the purest and holiest character, boils over and is at once dissipated, and vanishes and threats of heaven and sea, himself standing unmoved.
Cicero, Marcus T.
Few persons are made of such strong fiber that they will make a costly outlay when surface work will pass as well in the market.
Bounds, E. M.
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
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
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Too often the strong, silent man is silent only because he does not know what to say, and is reputed strong only because he has remained silent.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Gross and obscure natures, however decorated, seem impure shambles; but character gives splendor to youth, and awe to wrinkled skin and gray hairs.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
They attack the one man with their hate and their shower of weapons. But he is like some rock which stretches into the vast sea and which, exposed to the fury of the winds and beaten against by the waves, endures all the violence
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
