1.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

2.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates weak ones.

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
Virgil

4.
Integrity has no need of rules.
Camus, Albert

Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

7.
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

Bounds, E. M.

Reputation is only a candle, of wavering and uncertain flame, and easily blown out, but it is the light by which the world looks for and finds merit.
Lowell, James Russell

12.
I have often thought the best way to define a man's character would be to seek out the particular mental or moral attitude in which, when it comes upon him, he felt himself most deeply and intensely active and alive. At such moments there is a voice inside which speaks and says: This is the real me!.
James, William

13.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.

Greeley, Horace

16.
One can acquire everything in solitude - except character.
Marie Henri Beyle

A person reveals his character by nothing so clearly as the joke he resents.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

18.
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.

19.
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

20.
Therefore keep in the midst of life. Do not isolate yourself. Be among men and things, and among troubles, and difficulties, and obstacles.
Drummond, Henry

Good character is more to be praised than outstanding talent. Most talents are, to some extent, a gift. Good character, by contrast, is not given to us. We have to build it piece by piece-by thought, choice, courage and determination.
Luther, John

22.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

Few people can distinguish the genuinely good from the reverse.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

26.
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

27.
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

28.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

29.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

30.
I take it as a man's duty to restrain himself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

31.
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

32.
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.

33.
Judge of your natural character by what you do in dreams.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

34.
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.
Akhenaton

35.
Character is the impulse reined down into steady continuance.
Parkhurst, Charles H.

36.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades.
Bisset, Jacqueline

37.
Nothing marks the character of a young man more than failure.

38.
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

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

46.
Not to be cheered by praise, not to be grieved by blame, but to know thoroughly ones own virtues or powers are the characteristics of an excellent man.
Pandita, Saskya
