Character is simply habit long continued.
Plutarch

If an ass goes traveling it will not come home a horse.

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

11.
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

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

15.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
Elihu Burritt

16.
It isn't the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog, that counts.
Howell, Harry

17.
Wherever man goes to dwell his character goes with him.
Proverb, African

18.
You must regulate your life by the standards you admire when you are at your best.
Thomas, John M.

19.
Character is to man what carbon is to steel.
Hill, Napoleon

20.
My father told me that if you saw a man in a Rolls Royce you could be sure he was not a gentleman unless he was the chauffeur.
Arran, Earl of

21.
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.

22.
Character is our destiny.
Heraclitus

Pandita, Saskya

26.
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested.
Chambers, Oswald

27.
To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
Hepburn, Katharine

28.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
Guideposts

29.
He that has light within his own clear breast may sit in the center, and enjoy bright day: But he that hides a dark soul and foul thoughts benighted walks under the mid-day sun;
Milton, John

30.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
Thoreau, Henry David

31.
I have conquered an empire but I have not been able to conquer myself.
Peter The Great

32.
Property may be destroyed and money may lose its purchasing power; but, character, health, knowledge and good judgment will always be in demand under all conditions.
Babson, Roger

33.
Everyone has three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.
Karr, Alphonse

34.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Fitzwater, P. B.

35.
Character is a victory, not a gift.

36.
It is better for the development of character and contentment to do certain things badly for yourself than to have them done better for you by someone else.

37.
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

38.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

39.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

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

41.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.
Michener, James A.

42.
Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
Abraham Lincoln

43.
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

44.
Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.
Greeley, Horace

45.
Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Proverb

46.
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.

47.
Character is a by-product; it is produced in the great manufacture of daily duty.
Wilson, Woodrow T.

48.
It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate -- to surmount every difficulty by resolution and contrivance.
Jefferson, Thomas

49.
Gross and obscure natures, however decorated, seem impure shambles; but character gives splendor to youth, and awe to wrinkled skin and gray hairs.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

50.
Instill the love of you into all the world, for a good character is what is remembered.
Merikare
