2.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Character is made by many acts; it may be lost by a single one.

Luther, John

12.
It is not what he had, or even what he does which expresses the worth of a man, but what he is.
Amiel, Henri Frederic

Good character is like a rubber ball -- thrown down hard -- it bounces right back. Good reputation is like a crystal ball -- thrown for gain -- shattered and cracked.
Linall Jr. A. L.

14.
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

15.
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

16.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

17.
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.

18.
The hell to be endured hereafter, of which theology tells, is no worse than the hell we make for ourselves in this world by habitually fashioned our characters in the wrong way.
James, William

19.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

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

21.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

The formation of one's character ought to be everyone's chief aim.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

23.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.
Royal, Darrell

Virgil

25.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

26.
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.
Baruch, Bernard M.

27.
Fame is what you have taken, character is what you give. When to this truth you awaken, then you begin to live.
Taylor, Bayard

28.
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

29.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

30.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

31.
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.
Smith, Roy L.

32.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
Proverb, Chinese

33.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

34.
I appreciate people who are civil, whether they mean it or not. I think: Be civil. Do not cherish your opinion over my feelings. There's a vanity to candor that isn't really worth it. Be kind.
Richard Greenberg

35.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

36.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

37.
Strong characters are brought out by change of situation, and gentle ones by permanence.
Richter, Jean Paul

38.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David

39.
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

Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to be established.
Confucius

Covey, Stephen R.

44.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

45.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

46.
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

47.
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

48.
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.
Churchill, Winston

49.
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.
William Carleton

50.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew
