Character

The depth and strength of a human character are defined by its moral reserves. People reveal themselves completely only when they are thrown out of the customary conditions of their life, for only then do they have to fall back on their reserves.
- Trotsky, Leon

Luther, John

29.
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

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

31.
To succeed is nothing -- it's an accident. But to feel no doubts about oneself is something very different: it is character.
Leneru, Marie

32.
There is no greater index of character so sure as the voice.
Disraeli, Benjamin

33.
If a man character is to be abused there's nobody like a relative to do the business.
Thackeray, William M.

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

Too many lives are needed to make just one.

Bulger, William M.

Miller, Arthur

50.
Pity the man who has a character to support --it is worse than a large family -- he is silent poor indeed.
