Character

A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you, and were helped by you, will remember you when forget-me-nots are withered. Carve your name on hearts, and not on marble
- Spurgeon, Charles Haddon

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

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.

7.
The highest qualities of character must be earned.
Abbott, Lyman

Voltaire

14.
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

15.
A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another s.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

21.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.
Aquinas, St. Thomas

22.
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

23.
Character is like the foundation of a house -- it is below the surface.

24.
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.

Beecher, Henry Ward

28.
While an original is always hard to find, he is easy to recognize.
Mason, John L.

29.
Between ourselves and our real natures we interpose that wax figure of idealizations and selections which we call our character.
Lippmann, Walter

30.
The happiness of every country depends upon the character of its people, rather than the form of its government.
Haliburton, Thomas C.

I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character, if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.
Nathaniel Emmons

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

34.
Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.
Baldwin, Faith

35.
No artist work is so high, so noble, so grand, so enduring, so important for all time, as the making of character in a child.
Cushman, Charlotte Saunders

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

37.
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

38.
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

39.
To have character is to be big enough to take life on.
Richards, Mary Caroline

40.

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

45.
It is well for the world that in most of us, by the age of thirty, the character has set like plaster, and will never soften again.
James, William

46.
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.

47.
Characters do not change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed.
Disraeli, Benjamin

48.
It is with trifles and when he is off guard that a man best reveals his character.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

49.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

50.
Those who cross the sea change only the climate, not their character.
Horace
