2.

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

Lincoln, Abraham

Lowell, James Russell

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

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.

11.

Confucius

Fitzwater, P. B.

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

14.
There's a fine line between character building and soul destroying.
Hay, Colin

15.
In attempts to improve your character, know what is in your power and what is beyond it.
Francis Thompson

Buddha

While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

19.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

William Carleton

21.
Deep down, I'm pretty superficial.
Gardner, Ava

22.
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.

23.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

24.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

Maurois, Andre

Marden, Orison Swett

30.

Thoreau, Henry David

31.
While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

32.
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

33.
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans.
Reagan, Ronald

34.
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

35.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Aristotle

It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

Cushman, Charlotte Saunders

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.
