Luther, John

10.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
Shakespeare, William

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

20.
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.

21.
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

Plutarch

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

26.
Let us not say, every man is the architect of his own fortune; but let us say, every man is the architect of his own character.
Boardman, George D.

Marie Henri Beyle

29.
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

30.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

Everyone has the obligation to ponder well his own specific traits of character. He must also regulate them adequately and not wonder whether someone else's traits might suit him better. The more definitely his own a man's character is, the better it fits him.
Cicero

32.
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

33.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

34.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
Solon

Plautus, Titus Maccius
