Our character...is an omen of our destiny, and the more integrity we have and keep, the simpler and nobler that destiny is likely to be.
George Santayana

2.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.
Richter, Jean Paul

You don't get in life what you want; you get in life what you are.
Brown, Les

8.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

9.
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

Emerson, Ralph Waldo

Pandita, Saskya

13.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

14.
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

15.
It is better for the development of character and contentment to do certain things badly for yourself than to have them done better for you by someone else.

16.
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

17.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

18.
Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

19.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

20.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

21.
If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.
Proverb

22.
Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconcious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character
Covey, Stephen R.

23.
The higher character a person supports the more they should regard their smallest actions.

24.
Character, not circumstances, makes the man.
Washington, Booker T.

25.
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

26.
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

27.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

28.
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

29.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

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

32.
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

33.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

34.
He that has light within his own clear breast may sit in the center, and enjoy bright day: But he that hides a dark soul and foul thoughts benighted walks under the mid-day sun;
Milton, John

35.
To succeed is nothing, it's an accident. but to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Marie Leneru

36.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

37.
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

38.
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.
Trotsky, Leon

39.
I have only got down on to paper, really, three types of people: the person I think I am, the people who irritate me, and the people I'd like to be.
Forster, Edward M.

40.
One stumble is enough to deface the character of an honorable life.
Estrange, L.

41.
You must look into people, as well as at them.
Chesterfield, Lord

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

Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good.
Landers, Ann

44.
A man's character is his fate.
Heraclitus

45.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

46.
It takes a great deal of character strength to apologize quickly out of one's heart rather than out of pity. A person must possess himself and have a deep sense of security in fundamental principles and values in order to genuinely apologize.
Covey, Stephen R.

47.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.
Limbaugh, Rush

48.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

49.
Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius
