Weakness of character is the only defect which cannot be amended.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

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

7.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

Richard Greenberg

Keller, Helen

14.
Character is always lost when a high ideal is sacrificed on the altar of conformity and popularity.

15.
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

16.
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

17.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

Camus, Albert

19.
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
Proverb, Chinese

20.
There is never a better measure of what a person is than what he does when he is absolutely free to choose.
Bulger, William M.

21.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

22.
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

23.
If you create an act, you create a habit. If you create a habit, you create a character. If you create a character, you create a destiny.
Maurois, Andre

24.
The measure of a man's real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
Macaulay, Thomas B.

Character isn't something you were born with and can't change, like your fingerprints. It's something you weren't born with and must take responsibility for forming.
Rohn, Jim

26.
During my eighty-seven years, I have witnessed a whole succession of technological revolutions. But none of them has done away with the need for character in the individual or the ability to think.

Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

28.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
Goldsmith, Oliver

29.
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

30.
The superior man will watch over himself when he is alone. He examines his heart that there may be nothing wrong there, and that he may have no cause of dissatisfaction with himself.
Confucius

31.
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

32.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
Voltaire

33.
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.

34.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

35.
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

36.
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

37.
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Proverb

38.
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self respect springs.
Joan Didion

Carlyle, Thomas

40.
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.

A man's character is the reality of himself; his reputation, the opinion others have formed about him; character resides in him, reputation in other people; that is the substance, this is the shadow.
Beecher, Henry Ward

42.
Testimony is like an arrow shot from a long bow and the force of it depends on the strength of the arm from which it was shot. Argument is like a bullet fired from a gun and has equal force even when issued from a child.

43.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
Euripides

44.
A rich man has no need of character.
Proverb, Hebrew

To be fond of learning is near to wisdom; to practice with vigor is near to benevolence; and to be conscious of shame is near to fortitude. He who knows these three things
Confucius
